Description of Elsanta Plants & Fruit:
This is one of the most common commercially grown strawberries. The big, glossy fruit has great flavour, stores well, while he plants are vigorous and crop heavily. Your home grown crops will be much better than most Elsantas that you find in the supermarket. A lot of mass produced soft fruit is grown using techniques that force water into the fruit to make a profit. This is why the flavour can be less than impressive.

Growing Elsanta Strawberry Plants:
Elsanta is not suitable for organic growing and it is slightly less hardy than average, so it will benefit greatly from frost protection during winter. All strawberries need a well drained soil and this is especially true for Elsanta, which is prone to root rot on clay soil.
