Albion Organic Strawberry
Quart Size 4-plant pack
Released in 2004 by the University of California, Albion is a modern day-neutral cultivar cropping on 4-6 week intervals from late May until the first frosts. I’ve found that it does best in raised beds, and regular feeding is essential for good sized berries. Albion comes in with some new resistance, and has shown itself to be very productive in 2015, doing well with cropping despite the heavy rain and moisture levels. U of C breeders have found Albion is resistant to verticillium wilt, phytophthora crown rot, and anthracnose crown rot. In the wet year of 2015 it had done well with the first cropping, holding up better than any of the other day-neutrals (the alpines did well in the wet weather as well). Berry is large for the first cropping (June), with medium-large berries for the remainder of the cropping year. Very sweet unless a lot of rain has fallen (just impossible to maintain full sweetness in the presence of 10+ inches a week), full red, with no green shoulders when ripe.
