Performance of strawberry cultivars in Florida

Bielinski M. Santos, Craig K. Chandler, Stephen M. Olson, Teresa W. Olczyk


Three field trials were conducted to compare strawberry (Fragaria xananassa Duch.) cultivar performances in multiple locations throughout Florida (Balm, Homestead, and Quincy). Tested cultivars were 'Camarosa', 'Albion', 'Treasure', 'Winter Dawn', 'Carmine', 'Camino Real', 'Strawberry Festival', and '00-51'(at Balm only). In balm the highest early yield was obtained with '00-51', followed by 'Winter Dawn', 'Carmine', 'Albion', and 'Strawberry Festival.'Carmine' and 'Camino Real' provided the highest early yields, whereas 'Winter Dawn' and 'Camarosa' had the same early production as 'Camino Real' and 'Carmine'. The total yield of 'Winter Dawn', Strawberry Festival and Winter Dawn provided the highest early yield and 'Camarosa' and Strawberry Festival provided the largest season-long production. The results indicated that the Florida cultivars Winter Dawn and Strawberry Festival consistently were among the cultivars that provided the highest early and total marketable yield in all three experimental sites. The total yields produced by Camarose were comparable to those of Strawberry Festival in all three locations.
