Yambu Organic Strawberry
Quart Size 4-plant pack
Yambu is a new cultivar to the US that I have been trialing at our farm here in Indiana for the past six years. It was first selected in the Netherlands in 2003 (from a cross made in 2001) by Fresh Forward.
It ripens a little after or concurrently with Honeoye, which is still seen as the measure of strawberry success here in the Midwest (especially for organic growers).
What I’ve found in the short time I’ve grown it is this: it has a nice large berry that is very sweet despite some adverse weather over the past four harvest seasons. Yambu has a slightly longer harvest time compared to Honeoye, but the two are very compatible in vigor and yield. Honeoye is one of Yambu’s parents, so this similarity is not unexpected. The berry of Yambu is a little firmer than Honeoye, and seems to have fewer “seeds” on the berry. Diversity is a great thing to have in the organic garden, and I have been very pleased with Yambu’s performance so far.
