The strawberry, Fragaria, is a member of the rose (rosaceae) family and one of the most popular berry fruits in the world. There are more than 10 species of Fragaria that differ in flavour, size and texture yet they all have the same characteristic heart-shaped, red flesh and seeded coat. Strawberries are not actually fruits as they carry their seeds on the outside and develop runners, which produce roots which go on to create a clone plant.
There are 3 types of strawberries grown in home gardens: June-bearing, Ever-bearing and Day-neutral. They differ in growth, flowering, and fruiting characteristics.
Strawberries are a temperate climate crop and will be stubborn to flower or fruit if temperatures are too elevated (+28C). This is a plant variety that is best grown indoors in cooler temperatures, preferably air-conditioning.
Varieties for 2022:
Elan is a day-neutral variety. Elan has a vigorous habit (many runners) and white flowers that produce medium-size, conical berries with intense, sweet strawberry flavour. Produces fruit the first year and bears throughout.
