Strawberry Malling Centenary A+ Grade Fruit Plants (Early Season)

SKU: 50166

10 A+ Grade Runners

Fragaria x ananassa

From 08th May 2024

Bred to mark the 100th anniversary of the leading East Malling Research Station in Kent, this variety has a superb flavour with uniform and glossy, bright red, conical shaped fruit which is well displayed on the plant, making picking quick and easy. Fruiting from early to late June (earlier if grown under cloches).

Delivered as dormant bare rooted A+ grade plants.

A+ grade plants are grown through the summer months and covered with fleece in the beginning for added protection – only plants with a 15mm+ diameter size fall into this grade. The bare roots can be planted out as long as the ground is not frozen down to root level. They are characterised by having very well developed root systems and, on average, will go on to produce 3-4 trusses per plant which in turn will help to generate more flowers and fruit – 400g+ of berries per plant! We trialled A+ grade plants against standard runners in our trials and were very impressed with the results – around 50% more berries were harvested from the A+ grade plants!

Strawberry Malling Centenary A+ Grade Fruit Plants (Early Season)

The best strawberry I have ever grown. First picking end of May, large beautiful shaped fruits evenly ripened and very good tasting. Admired by all who had a taste! A real good buy. Well done East Malling, what a fruit for your centenary.
