Only strawberries can be better than strawberries! This is probably why this berry is so popular in the gardens and vegetable gardens of Russians. Strawberries are grown today even by residents of high-rise buildings, because there are many varieties intended for planting in pots or boxes. Strawberries have a lot of advantages, but the main advantages of this berry are the sweet taste and aroma that personify summer.
What qualities of strawberries are most appreciated by summer residents, and which variety to choose for planting on their site - this is the article about this.
What is the value of the strawberry variety
Every gardener who has been growing sweet berries for many years probably already has a couple of favorite varieties. And you can love strawberries for various reasons: someone likes the sweet variety of strawberries, someone puts the yield of berries in the first place, while others even prefer exclusive species that stand out against the general background by the size of berries or exotic taste.
Feedback from experienced gardeners allowed us to rank the most important requirements put forward by farmers for a sweet berry:
- The strawberries must be large. The berry can be called such by weight in the range of 50-60 grams. Such sizes of strawberries provide high yields, because up to a kilogram of fruits can be removed from each large-fruited bush. Yes, and such a berry looks very presentable, they will definitely want to buy it (this question usually worries summer residents who grow fruits for sale).
- To preserve their presentation for a long time, strawberries must have a dense consistency. Such berries are unlikely to become prey for slugs or become infected with rot, they will not wrinkle during transportation and will look great as a decor.
- Productivity has always been a fundamental factor when choosing a variety of any garden crop. Only true connoisseurs of the exclusive taste or unusual appearance of berries may not care about the question of profitability. The rest of the gardeners prefer fruitful varieties that allow not only to get enough fresh fruits from a couple of rows of strawberries, but also to clog something for the winter.
- The durability of the variety is equally important. Varieties that can withstand winter frosts, intense heat, periods of drought are preferred. It will be nice if the strawberry chosen for the summer cottage is undemanding to the composition of the soil, does not need complex care and regular feeding. The resistance of the variety to diseases and pests is especially appreciated. And most importantly, along with all this, the berry should be tasty and fruitful.
- The taste and aroma of strawberries are probably the most important factors that should be followed when choosing a variety. In order for the berry to smell good and taste good, it must maintain a balance of acids and sugars. Such strawberries will not only be delicious, but also the healthiest.
Attention! The taste of the berries can only be neglected by those who grow fruits for sale. For such farmers, the more important is the quantity of the crop and the presentation of strawberries. But summer residents growing strawberries for their own family are more interested in taste characteristics.
The best and sweetest strawberries

Review of Kimberly strawberry

I have been cultivating this variety for several years, so I can give several recommendations to those who are just thinking about buying seedlings. The variety should not be grown in the shade, even slightly shaded areas of the garden are unsuitable for this strawberry, as it is often affected by powdery mildew and gray mold. The shape of the strawberries may not be the same, this does not mean at all that the taste of the berries will be spoiled - strawberries are very sweet and appetizing. The height and size of the bushes do not correspond to the parameters declared by the manufacturer of the variety - the bushes are powerful and spreading, which must be taken into account when planting seedlings. If you pick ripe berries on time and do it regularly, you can significantly extend the growing season, and the size of the strawberries will not decrease by the end of the season - the last berries will be as large as the first ones. Follow these simple rules and you'll enjoy great strawberries all season long.
This variety boasts that it meets almost all the requirements of farmers:
- gives high and stable yields;
- able to grow in unstable, harsh climates;
- resists disease and is not attacked by pests;
- has large and beautiful berries;
- it has a pleasant sweet taste and strong aroma.

Do not forget about watering the bushes, because the lack of moisture will certainly affect the taste of the berries.
Each farmer has his own favorite strawberry variety, but everyone, without exception, appreciates the sweetness and aroma of this berry. When choosing a variety for your site, you should not dwell on just one name - in order not to miscalculate for sure and pick up a really worthwhile strawberry for the garden, it is better to plant at least two varieties of this sweet berry.
