FRAGARIA x ananassa 'Haverland'
Garden Strawberry, Strawberry
Garden strawberries are hybrid perennials prized for their sweet, aromatic red fruit. The heirloom variety 'Haverland' bears numerous robustly flavored, pale-red berries on vigorous hardy plants. Rarely grown today, this "June-bearing" strawberry was a favorite of home gardeners in the northern United States in the early twentieth century. It originated in Cincinnati, Ohio, around 1882.
Like most garden strawberries, 'Haverland' spreads by runners to form expanding mats of three-lobed leaves. Plants bear round white five-petaled flowers in spring that develop from buds initiated the previous fall. This self-sterile cultivar will not form fruits unless pollenized by another strawberry variety. The conical, medium-firm berries ripen in late spring and early summer.
Garden strawberries thrive in full sun and moderately fertile, moist, acidic to neutral soil. They are good choices for culinary gardens, containers, or "strawberry towers." They are vulnerable to numerous pests and diseases, which should be monitored and controlled if necessary. This variety is noted for its relative disease-resistance.
