Fragaria x ananassa 'Vibrant'

A fantastic new early variety to start the season! Bred and selected by East Malling Research, Vibrant has rapidly become established amongst commercial growers as the premier early variety and is an excellent choice for the garden. Vibrant produces medium to large bright red berries that are very sweet and flavoursome to taste. The plants are heavy cropping and resistant to powdery mildew and crown rot. Double cropping in the main crop year can occur if July temperatures are relatively low with surprisingly good fruit being produced in September.

 

Commercial growers maximise the yield of the 60 day crop by planting with hand graded plants, carefully selected to ensure a crown size of 15mm or more in diameter. With our 15-18mm SuperCrowns you too can maximise your 60 day crop.

Bred in the U.K.  RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Season: early Summer (June - early July).


Available for delivery: March - late June (coldstored plants).


Price includes p&p.


 

More Information

If you have ever grown your own strawberries before you will know that the aroma and flavour is far superior to that of shop bought fruit. What’s more, they take up a minimum amount of room and are easy to grow. All they require is a sunny, sheltered spot, they can be spaced 30cm (12in) apart in the open ground. Alternatively they can be grown in growbags (10 plants per growbag), or in hanging baskets or containers.

Our hand graded strawberry plants are raised on selected sites in the UK under the Plant Health Propagation Scheme (PHPS) and are guaranteed to be free from pests and diseases. Fresh dug strawberry plants (runners) are available in October and November and will crop the following season. Coldstored strawberry plants are available from March to late June. These will crop 60-90 days after planting.
