Strawberry variety (garden strawberry) Clery was bred in 1996 by Italian breeders as a result of crossing Sweet Charlie and Onebor varieties. In 1998, the novelty was registered and appeared on the agricultural market in Europe, and soon became popular with gardeners and farmers in many countries.

Today, Clery is among the top 10 varieties for commercial and individual cultivation. It is valued for its excellent taste, perfect presentation, and also for its rather high yield for non-repairable strawberries.

The variety is suitable for growing both indoors and outdoors.

Varie Features

Clery bushes are tall, spherical, medium leafy, compact in appearance. Whiskers are abundant. The leaves are dark green, shiny, large. There are a lot of flower stalks, so during the ripening period, the bush is literally hung with clusters of ripe berries.  

The fruits of Clery are beautiful, regular conical shape, uniform, "as in the selection." The color of the berries is dark red saturated with shine. Pulp – juicy, aromatic. The taste is sweet with a characteristic sourness (due to errors in agricultural technology and adverse weather, the fruits can sour more).

The average weight of fruits is 25−30 gr., the largest ones reach – 40−45 gr. By the end of the season, the berries become smaller.

Strawberries of this variety are ideal for sale. The berries are long-lived, after harvesting fresh they can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5-6 days without losing their appearance. They tolerate transportation well if they pick strawberries immediately into the container in which they will be transported. And strawberry jam and jams from Clery – one of the most delicious.

The undoubted dignity of Clery – early amicable ripening of fruits, due to which the harvest of ripe strawberries occurs almost simultaneously and takes 12-15 days.

Early ripe Clery belongs to varieties of short daylight hours, blooms in early May, and begins to bear fruit in June. In the southern regions and indoors, strawberries can bloom from mid-April, and in the second half of May – bear fruit.

Variety «Clery» quite high-yielding (for non-repairable varieties): up to 290 centners are harvested per hectare per season. berries. From one bush, 1-1.5 kg of fruits are obtained, maximum – 2 kg. In closed ground, the yield increases.

In the first year of planting "Clery" gives a rather poor harvest. A full collection is carried out for 2-3 years. In the fourth year, the productivity of the variety decreases, and the plantation needs to be updated.

Planting and care

In order for the strawberries «Clery» maximized its potential – gave a good harvest of beautiful, large, sweet berries, – it is necessary to observe agricultural practices when growing, to provide plants with proper care.

It is also necessary to remember that the yield and health of Clery depends on climatic conditions. So in regions with a cold climate in the open field, the variety can show unstable results, and often needs shelter.

Landing. The optimal period for planting Clery strawberries – early spring, after the snow has left, when the soil thaws and warms up with the first rays of the sun.

When choosing a landing site, it is important to remember that with a lack of light and heat, Clery begins to shrink and become very sour. Therefore, preference is given to a site facing southwest, illuminated by the sun throughout the day, without drafts. At the same time, the plant does not tolerate heat well, on hot days it needs artificial shading.

Soil for "Clery" suitable loamy with neutral acidity and deep groundwater. To avoid stagnant moisture, strawberries are planted in high beds. 3-4 weeks before planting, the soil is dug up on the site, all weeds, rhizomes, larvae are removed, the earth is enriched with organic fertilizers.

The wells are formed at a distance of 35 x 40 cm from each other, and frac12; a glass of warm water. The roots of seedlings are dipped in "soil talker". After that, the seedlings are placed in the hole and the roots are sprinkled with earth to the growth bud, the earth around the bush, as it should, is compacted and watered.  

Irrigation. The Clery variety tolerates short-term drought well, but a longer lack of moisture negatively affects the taste, size and health of strawberries, as well as excessive moisture and a rainy season.

The pledge of good harvests – maintaining moderate soil moisture and observing the irrigation regime. From the end of May until the beginning of active flowering "Clery" watered once every two weeks (in moderately warm weather). In the heat – watering is carried out weekly. During the rainy season – plants in open ground do not additionally moisturize.

During the period of flowering, fruiting and ripening of the crop, the frequency of watering is reduced until the end of the harvest. The last, moisture-discharge, watering is carried out in October. For irrigation, choose the method of sprinkling, while the water should be warm. During fruiting and ripening, strawberries are shed between rows, making sure that water does not fall on the berries. After each watering, weeds are removed, the soil is loosened and mulched.

Feeding. The lack of nutrients can affect not only the yield, but also the taste of the berries. Usually "Clery" feed 3-4 times per season.

1 dressing – in early spring. Apply complex fertilizer or organic matter.

2 – with the appearance of the first young leaves, the bushes are fertilized with a solution of urea (1 tablespoon per bucket of water). Pour under each root – 0.5 l.

3– before flowering: add potassium and nitrophoska.

4 – after harvesting the entire seasonal crop, wood ash is added.

At the end of each top dressing, the beds must be watered.

Important! The variety forms a lot of whiskers, so during the season, extra whiskers must be removed, otherwise they will draw on a large amount of nutrients and prevent a good harvest.

In preparation for winter bushes are covered with mulch (straw, sawdust) and agrofibre. In severe winters, plants are wrapped. The landing can be covered with non-woven fabric. In the spring, overwintered mulch, covering material, dried leaves and other debris are removed from the site. After the first new leaves grow, the old ones are cut off.

How to choose the right Clery seedlings?

  1. Strawberry leaves should be bright, even, without damage. Wrinkling and spots – signs of tick and disease.
  2. The root system of the seedling should be well developed, moist, without dry patches.
  3. It is advisable to purchase seedlings with a closed root system – in containers or cups with an earthy clod. Such seedlings will take root better in a new place, and the roots will be less damaged during planting.
