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 the plants are vigorous and crop heavily. Your homegrown crops will be much better than most specimens 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.
