As a result of crossing varieties of Zeng Zengana and Fairfax, a strawberry Ruby pendant was obtained, the description of the variety must be known to gardeners who intend to grow it in their garden and get a good harvest.
Strawberry Ruby pendant is resistant to various diseases and infections. And it is quite unpretentious to the following soil conditions:
- getting wet.
The fruits of this variety are medium in size and have a burgundy color. The average weight of a ripe fruit is 20-25 g. As a rule, the fruits have a conical shape and a slight sheen. You can verify this yourself, a photo of strawberries is presented below (Fig. 1). There are few seeds in the strawberries, and they are slightly pressed into the pulp. Ripe berry has a moderately sweet taste. If you compare this variety of strawberries with other species, then it has several advantages. Firstly, the consistency of the fetus is very dense, so it does not become sap during transportation. This is perhaps the most important plus of this variety. Secondly, when making jam, the berry retains its structure and shape.
Garden Strawberry Ruby pendant belongs to the medium-yielding varieties. If you properly care for strawberries, then from one bush you can collect a good crop, for example, from one bush you can collect 0.5 kg of berries. Such yield for commercial cultivation, of course, is not enough, but for the family just right.
Berries ripen almost simultaneously. When harvesting, the berries come off very easily. If you want to get a good harvest in the summer, then planting or replanting bushes is best in August. If the bushes were planted in the spring, then wait for the harvest next season.
This strawberry variety is mid-season. The bushes are semi-spreading and compact. As can be seen in the photo, the bushes are not too thick (Fig. 2). Despite the average height, they are quite powerful and have a strong root system. Peduncles are located below the level of the sheets. There are many inflorescences, and they are small. Peduncles are umbrella-shaped.
How to plant strawberries
This variety is characterized by large antennae, therefore, planting or replanting bushes should be at a distance of not less than 30-40 cm. In order to collect a good crop, it is necessary to fertilize the area where garden strawberries will be planted. The maximum strength and growth of strawberries gives phosphorus. Therefore, fertilize the soil with potassium and phosphorus should be in early spring. If you decide to add humus to the site where you plan to plant strawberries, then do not forget that a large amount of humus can lead to the death of bushes. It is allowed to make such fertilizer no more than 5-7 kg / sq. M.
All gardeners want to get a good harvest, but, unfortunately, many make the same mistake - they make fresh humus in the ground. The number of berries due to this does not become anymore. Fresh humus only leads to a set of deciduous mass. Bushes in this case spend all their strength on the growth of leaves, but it simply is not enough for the formation of berries. All nutrients and nutrients go to the leaves, so they grow wide and large.
After the bushes have been planted, it is necessary to loosen the ground near each bush.
This strawberry variety is considered moody in terms of soil. The soil must be neutral. The optimal acidity level is 6.0 pH. Too acidic soils can kill the root system. High acidity can be controlled by liming. If necessary, such a procedure should be carried out every 3-4 years.
As a rule, frosts are fatal for all plants, so in spring weak bushes of wild strawberries must be covered with a film. Such a shelter will keep humidity and temperature.
As for watering, strawberry bushes can be watered in several ways, for example, by soil, sprinkling and drip. But remember that this strawberry variety does not tolerate heavy watering. Stagnant water or high humidity can lead to the death of the plant and trauma to the root system.
If you do not plan to propagate the bushes, then the new antennae must be removed. This procedure reduces the area of nutrition and does not deplete the mother plant. A detailed description of the characteristics of the variety facilitates the growing process. Knowing all the strengths and weaknesses of the variety, as well as observing the rules of care, you can get a good harvest.
Perhaps the most common disease among garden varieties of strawberries is gray rot. It appears due to high humidity. Gray rot is able to affect leaves, inflorescences and fruits. On the leaves you can see gray or brown spots. Dark spots with a characteristic gray coating appear on the fruits.
In order to prevent the death of bushes, you should know the basic rules for combating gray rot. Regularly spray the bushes with a 3-4% solution of Bordeaux fluid. Harvest on time. It is necessary to mulch the soil around the bushes. For mulching, it is best to use straw.
Powdery mildew can also affect the leaves of the bushes. White plaque appears on the leaves. They can curl and dry. Berries are deformed and get an unpleasant smell. In order not to lose the entire crop, it is necessary to process strawberries with Topaz. Topaz treatment should be carried out both before the flowering period and after harvesting.
If the bushes settle, and the leaves become less and less, and they are significantly behind in growth, then this is verticillous wilting. The first manifestations of strawberry damage Ruby pendant can be seen in early June. Sandy soil can lead to wilting. To protect the bushes from death, you must follow the rules of agricultural technology. You can not plant strawberries after potatoes, tomatoes, pumpkins and cucumbers. Grow strawberries every year in a different place. Affected bushes should be destroyed in a timely manner.
