This tree was planted in 2009 on two year old root stock and has grown very well. Good healthy foliage. Has just started to fruit this year. Terribly prone to Curly leaf. Missed spraying before bud burst this year due to excessive wet weather. I just remove the affected leaves each time I walk passed.

This is an heirloom variety from Diggers Club. I will never buy strawberries from the supermarket after growing these. The ripe fruit is like popping a litle ball of sweet perfume into your mouth.

What is eating my beautiful strawberries? Ants perhaps. I have found the most minute worm like bug in one of the fruit.
