Strawberry Plants Varieties

ALBION is a strawberry variety that is day-neutral (everbearing) and is a cross between Diamante and Cal 94.16-1. Leaves have shorter petiole length and typically have heavy pubescence. Leaves also don’t have as much concavity and have more rounded serrations. The primary flowers have 5-8 petals and this variety will bloom independently of the day length, as long as the conditions are suitable. Initiation of blooming varies on the weather and can be within 6 weeks after planting up to 3-4 months. The fruit has a more conical shape, is firmer, more uniform, and fairly large. The fruit has a sweet taste with moderate acid levels. Variety Producers
CAMAROSA was released by University of California. It is a strawberry variety developed from Douglas / Cal 85.218-605. Plant growth is similar to ‘Chandler’. Compared to Chandler, leaf color is distinctly lighter on the underside. Individual leaflets for Camarosa are larger, somewhat longer and narrower than for Chandler. Leaves (including petioles) are similar in length to Chandler, but are much broader. Petioles are thicker and stiffer than those of Chandler. Color of Camarosa leaves are darker green in comparison with Chandler. Leaves of Camarosa are less concave than leaves of Chandler. US Plant Patent PP 8,708. Variety Producers
CAMINO REAL is a new and distinct short-day strawberry cultivar. Attractive mostly symmetrical-conic fruit of very good quality typically is formed in a good yield. The fruit flavor is good and the fraction of non-marketable fruit tends to be low. The growth habit is very compact. Relatively small broad concave leaflets are formed that display semi-pointed serrations. Variety Producers
CHANDLER was released by University of California. It is a strawberry variety developed from Douglas / C55. Leaflets of Chandler are about the same size as those of `Tioga` averaging about one serration more per terminal half leaf. Leaves are about the same color and intensity as those of Tioga, 2.5GY4/3 (Munsell Color System-Nickerson Color Fan). Variety Producers
FESTIVAL was released by Florida Foundation Seed Producers, Inc in 2000. It is a plasticulture-adapted short-day strawberry variety developed from the cross of Rosa Linda / Oso Grande. Average height and width for mature plants is 23 and 30 cm respectively. Average petiole length and diameter is 120 mm and 3.5 mm respectively Petioles have medium pubescence. Average length and breadth of terminal leaflets is 78 and 73 mm respectively. Average length and breadth of secondary leaflets is 69 and 72 mm respectively. Leaflet margins are crenate and average 21 serrations per terminal leaflet, and 26 serrations per secondary leaflet. The upper leaf surface is dark grey-green color, and the lower leaf surface is a light grey-green color. Petiole color is medium yellow-green. US PLANT PATENT NUMBER PP 14,739. Unauthorized Propagation Prohibited. Variety Producers
FLORIDA RADIANCE This Florida strawberry is a short day cultivar. It originated from a cross of Winter Dawn and FL99-35. It has an open-plant habit with fruit that are attached to long pedicels. It has slightly larger fruit than Strawberry Festival (22g compared to 20g). Fruit are mostly medium conic with slightly sunken achenes, giving the fruit a smooth appearance. Fruit are glossy bright to dark red. Calyx is generally medium to large in size. Fruit are firm and juicy. Yields are similar to Strawberry Festival. It has moderate resistance to Botrytis fruit rot and anthracnose fruit rot. It is susceptible to crown rots caused by Colletotrichum gleosporiodes or Phythophora spp. Variety Producers
PALOMAR is a short-day cultivar from California. It has greater fruit size and improved firmness. It has a tendency to produce fruit with a dry calyx during the very early part of the fruiting season. The extent of this problem varies with production site and year, and appears to be a physiological problem rather than a disease issue. Palomar is susceptible to Phytophthora cactorum root and crown rot, and preventative treatments should be applied as pre-plant dips as well as at regular intervals throughout the fruiting season.

SWEET CHARLIE It is a strawberry variety developed from FL 80-456 / Pajaro. Plants of Sweet Charlie are smaller and more compact when compared to Camarosa. Leaves are generally slightly cupped, medium to dark green, and semi-glossy. US Plant Patent PP 8,729. Variety Producers
TREASURE was released by J & P Research, Inc. (Peggy Chang), in 2000. It is a plasticulture-adapted short-day strawberry variety developed from the cross of A3 (an unpatented J&P selection) / Oso Grande. Average height and width for mature plants is 19 and 37 cm respectively. Average petiole length and diameter is 203 mm and 3 mm respectively Petioles have heavy pubescence. Average length and breadth of terminal leaflets is 62 and 61 mm respectively. Shape of terminal leaflet is orbicular with serrulate margin (average of 19 serrations per terminal leaflet). Petiole pubescence is heavy. The frequency of bracts that occur on the petioles of Treasure is 64%, whereas there are none on Camarosa. Stolon has high anthocyanin coloration. US PLANT PATENT NUMBER PP 12,414. Unauthorized Propagation Prohibited. Variety Producers
