Fragaria x ananassa 'Sweetheart'

Bred at East Malling Research, we think this is one of the best garden varieties to have been released in recent years. Heavier cropping than most other main season varieties, the berries are large, sweet and juicy with a good old fashioned strawberry flavour. Resistant to Powdery Mildew.

 

Misted Tips are a new method of strawberry plant production used by commercial growers to maximize the maiden crop (the year after planting).  Now available to home gardeners, Misted Tip strawberry plants are produced by harvesting the best un-rooted runner tips from certified mother plants and rooting them into 4cm Ellepots under controlled conditions using a special mist propagation unit. Under these growing conditions very strong healthy plants are produced which will establish themselves very quickly once planted, improving the maiden crop by up to 100% compared to planting bare root strawberry runners in the autumn.

Bred in the U.K.  RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Season: mid Summer (mid June - late July).


Available for delivery: mid July to mid September.


Price includes p&p.
