English summary

For more than three years a study focus group of Fruitmasters’ growers is actively working on the future of everbearing strawberry varieties. The study focus group is learning more on the cultivation techniques of strawberry everbearers. The Flevo Berry varieties Furore and Favori turn out to be profitable and tasty strawberries. Rightfully they are allowed to be placed under the new Fruitmasters’ label “Sweet Selection”.

Stimulation for biology.

Everbearers have a longer grower season than the June bearers. This is ideal for biological control. The natural enemies can develop themselves very well and the population can grow. Until the arrival of the Suzuki-fly, half way August, growers can grow residu free.
