Craig K. Chandler, James C. Sumler,Jr


Strawberry (Fragaria xananassa Duch.) variety trials, each consisting of five entries (three new cultivars, one advanced selection, and a standard cultivar) were planted on 2 Oct., 9 Oct., and 17 Oct. 2001 at Dover, Fla. Ripe fruit were harvested twice weekly from mid-November till the end of February. The new cultivars, 'Earlibrite', 'Strawberry Festival', and 'Carmine', produced high early season fruit yield when planted on 2 Oct. and 9 Oct., and were more productive than 'Sweet Charlie' (the early season standard) during November and December.
