ALBION STRAWBERRY- EVERBEARING UC Fragaria x ananassa Zone 4-8 Recommended for Texas by Texas A & M


EVERBEARING VARIETY. The new gold standard of the industry in terms of flavor, Albion is a Day-neutral (ever-bearing) cultivar. It was bred to replace “Diamante” in the market and has done so and more. Fruiting plants of “Albion” are similar in size and vigor to “Diamante”, but more open and more erect than plants of “Diamante”. “Albion” is quite resistant to Verticillium wilt (Verticillium dahliae) and Phytophthora crown rot (Phytophthora cactorum), and relatively resistant to Anthracnose crown rot (Colletotrichum acutatum). When treated properly, it has tolerance to two-spotted spidermites (Tetranychus urticae). Fruit from “Albion” is typically long, conical, and very symmetrical. Fruit for “Albion” is firm. External and internal fruit color for “Albion” is dark. Southern California fruit growers are experimenting with early dug Albion as an alternative to Camarosa, Ventana, and Palomar. Albion fruits consistently throughout the season. One downside is that Albion produces many runners that must be cut to maintain high production. ZONE: 4-8
