Strawberry 'Christine' (Misted Tip) (Early Season)
Fragaria x ananassa
An early season variety, Strawberry 'Christine' produces large, juicy sweet fruit from disease resistant plants. Cropping periods can also be brought forward or extended if you are growing them in a greenhouse or polytunnel. Height: 20cm (8”). Spread: 30cm (12”).
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 4-8 months.
Our 'misted tip' plants are cell raised, enabling them to establish quicker than traditional bare root strawberry plants. Increasingly used by the commercial growers, Thompson & Morgan is pleased to bring this strawberry growing development to home gardeners. As a result you will get not only a faster established strawberry crop, but also a more plentiful crop producing up to 100% more fruit in the first year, compared to planting bare root runners.
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.More info
Fragaria x ananassaWith very good disease tolerance, a compact habit and superb flavour, Strawberry ‘Sweetheart ‘is, in our opinion, one of the best garden varieties to be introduced in recent years. From East Malling breeding, this June bearer has consistently impressed us in trials, delivering a high yield of fruit for up to 3 years, which is protected by a dense canopy of foliage. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 30cm (12"). More info
