Strawberry ‘Melba’ is a new, Australian bred variety that has consistent, large fruits. They look good and taste even better. They have a yummy fragrance too. It is a day neutral variety that means it just keeps on producing. The fruit even holds up well in rain.
Strawberry ‘Melba’ is day neutral which means it fruits throughout the year (whenever the temperate is between 20-30C). Plant growth is concentrated on fruit rather than runner production.
Strawberry ‘Adina’ was developed in Australia and it has good resistance to powdery mildew.
Strawberries are absolutely delicious and grow well in pots, vegetable gardens or ornamental beds.
Strawberries are easy and rewarding to grow.
Strawberries flourish in well drained, fertile soils and need at least six hours sun a day to fruit well. It is a good idea to mulch your Strawberries to help keep the area free of weeds and to lock in the moisture. You should also protect your Strawberries from slugs, snails and birds.
It is remarkable how the taste of home grown strawberries is so much sweeter than the ones from the supermarket.
