Benicia strawberries are very attractive. They score higher in appearance, size, and firmness. Benicia strawberries are slightly darker and have interior color that is more even. And, probably most importantly for the consumer, they have excellent flavor compared to other available short-day strawberries, particularly during early spring. Unlike some other varieties, the strawberries maintain their size well over the course of the season instead of diminishing in size toward the end. The Benicia strawberry plants themselves withstood the winter rainstorms, demonstrated moderate to high plant vigor, and have an open structure that allows for better harvest efficiency. Items Per Package: 25 plants per offer. Packaging: 1 Year old Bare Root Plants Height: 8-10 inches Bloom Time/Days To Maturity: December to June Sun/Shade: full sun Yield: 3-4 pounds Comments: Benicia strawberry plants should allow strawberry growers to capitalize through the improvement of a few of their traits, most notably yield. As they were specifically designed for the short-day (June-bearing) growing season, they are well-adapted to planting in the early fall for winter production systems and will, hopefully, allow growers to profit more on the early markets. Each Benicia strawberry plant can produce between 3 and 4 pounds of strawberries during the fruiting period (December to June) under optimal conditions.
