Albion Everbearing Strawberry Plants

This disease resistant strawberry is the first choice for gardeners who have struggled to grow other varieties. It is an everbearer that can start cropping in early May if it is grown under cover, late May in the open. On a good year, it will produce its last harvest in September.
Albion is recommended for organic growing and the fruit is of a high quality, with a rich sweet flavour and firm, succulent texture. The fruit and crops are both on the small side compared to some other everbearers, so it is not the most common supermarket variety, but farmers still like it for its reliability and the fact that the fruit travel well.
This variety is perfect for growing in containers: all strawberries need a soil depth of 30cms or more to crop well.

Features:

  • Everbearer: repeat fruiting through the summer and into autumn.
  • Ideal for containers.
  • Quality over quantity fruit, well suited to home growers who want the best flavour
  • Disease resistant, especially against verticillium wilt and crown rot.

Growing Albion Strawberry Plants:

This plant produces lots of runners: remove them early and often to keep your yields high.

Did You Know? 

California has been the world centre of strawberry breeding in recent decades, and this variety was raised there by Professor Douglas Shaw's team.

Albion is the true name of the island of Great Britain, meaning "the raised land" above the darkness, or "the upper world" where the sun shines (occasionally), unlike in the underworld. Alb is an Indo-European root word for mountain, as in Albania and the Swiss Alps.
There was a Celtic god, long retired now among lonely hills (in Wales, it is whispered, but some say near Cannes), called Albiorix, after whom one Celtic tribe took their name, the Albici in south-east France. In his day, Albiorix was the king of that tribe's heavens, driving and winnowing his people as they developed agriculture and metallurgy, music and architecture in the mostly forested Europe of their era. Warfare back then was synonymous with the necessities of safety and protection, particularly in relation to farming, which invariably attracted bandits: it is partly a modern bias to call Mars and Albiorix war gods, and not security gods. 
The Roman visitors who came to stay awhile in Britain wrote about the shining chalk cliffs along the south of England long before they took the prize for their own; white happens to be albus in their once alien tongue, which cemented Albion in the people's long memory. 

Albion's defining characteristic according to those who know her best, her neighbours, is her perfide, which is typically translated as perfidiousness or treachery, but we prefer to call it diplomacy, mon ami.
