The plant shows resistance to mildew as well as tolerance to Verticillium wilt and red stele. An excellent variety to extend the strawberry season.

Fenella

This plant is resistant against rain. The fruits are next to beautiful, glossy and fresh, also very uniform. The skin is firm, which is noticeable during long storage. The yield is equal to Florence. The flower trusses are long which makes the fruit easy to pick. The variety has a good resistance strong against verticillium and phytophthora.

Florence

The plants grow quickly to about 12 inches (30.5 cm.) in height, with a spread of 12 to 24 inches (30.5-61 cm.). High yielding and everbearing. Albion plants are hardy down to USDA zone 4 and can be grown as perennials in zones 4-7, but are very tolerant of heat and humidity and can be grown in much hotter climates, existing as evergreens in frost-free areas.
