Strawberry Elsanta is an excellent high yielding mid-season Dutch variety, one of the most widely grown commercial cultivars. A supermarket favourite due to its excellent storage qualities, size of fruit, and the fact that the fruit is less prone to bruising than many other varieties. The attractive fruit is glossy, orange-red in colour, has a delicious sweet flavour and is produced in abundance. The berries are large, conical in shape and easy to pick by virtue of the open growth habit of this variety.
A good choice for the home grower as it has a delicious taste and can grow under most conditions.
· Cropping period: mid-June to mid-July.
· Self fertile.
· A sunny & sheltered position is ideal
· Will tolerate most soil types.
