Strawberry 'Mount Everest' (Everbearer/ All Season)
Fragaria x ananassa
A unique climbing strawberry! This fast, strong growing variety will produce runners up to 1m (39”) in length that make a real talking point when trained up a trellis or obelisk climbing frame, or cascading from window boxes and hanging baskets. Better still, Strawberry 'Mount Everest' is an ever-bearering variety that produces a delicious crop of medium sized, sweet, juicy fruits from June right through to September! Height: 1m (39”). Spread: 30cm (12”).
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 4-8 months.
The aromatic, glossy fruit of Strawberry 'Elsanta' offer an outstanding flavour - and these plants are two years old, which means that you will get 4-5 times more fruit in the first year than a standard strawberry plant. The vigorous dark green plants will produce large orange-red berries that are exceptionally tasty and can be picked from mid-June through to mid-July. The plants will produce 400-500g of fruit this summer per plant in the right conditions. If you are short for space these plants can be grown in patio pots or straight into the garden. Ideal for jam making, mouth-watering desserts or just picking and eating.
