WHAT IS SPLENDOR STRAWBERRY PLANT?

Splendor is a short day strawberry variety , not reflowering and well adapted to Mediterranean climate. It is an early and productive variety. The original strawberry flavour, a juicy tasty fruit. Due to its long shelf life after harvest it can reach far markets.

Splendor is a new strawberry variety obtained from the Plant Sciences & Berry Genetics Breeding Program. It was chosen from trials made in Spain and California among a large number of selections.

Splendor is a short day variety , not reflowering; its cultivation adapts itself very well to the Mediterranean climate, with areas like the Southern Spain, Italy, Greece and Northern Morocco as ideal examples in terms of production.

In normal conditions, Splendor starts producing in late December; despite the days have poor light, this variety performs satisfactorily, it ripens very well and the plant continues producing a high quality fruit at a very good rate during the whole season. We can define Splendor as a very productive early variety.

The size of the plant is medium, offering easy harvesting; its strong root system permits its cultivation in hydroponics as well as pot plants fields.

Splendor fruit size is medium, medium-large size in the early season. It has a bright shiny red colour on the outside and an intense red one on the inside.

Splendor's flavour is the original strawberry flavor, that which we remember when we were children. It is a perfect mixture between sweet and acid into a juicy tasty piece of fruit.

Thanks to its long shelf life after harvest, Splendor keeps its natural shiny appearance for a long time, offering the possibility of reaching the furthest markets in excellent conditions.
