Fragaria ‘Monterey’ – Organic Day-neutral Strawberry
A 2009 introduction from the University of California. It’s probably the best of the California varieties for backyard organic fruit growers because it has high resistance to most strawberry diseases. It occasionally gets a bit of powdery mildew, a disease that’s easy to control organically. It’s also considered one of the best-tasting California varieties with a distinct sweet aftertaste. ‘Monterey’ is the best day-neutral variety for average climatic conditions in our area. Our plants are certified organic.
