Strawberry Selva: a frost-resistant remontant variety


More and more gardeners are trying to plant remontant strawberries. This is due to the fact that modern varieties are much better than those that existed quite recently, and the taste of the berries of many of them approaches that of the berries of the usual strawberries. One of the popular remontant varieties is Selva (popularly - Sylvia).

Description of the variety, its characteristics

Selva strawberries are of American origin, the climate of most regions of our country is quite suitable for its cultivation. The bushes of this strawberry are very large plants, spreading, with wide leaves. Peduncles are located at the level of leaves or above them, carry a large number of berries. The variety is considered to be early maturing: the first harvest can be harvested in the very first days of June, and in just a season it can bear fruit up to five times, that is, the fruiting at Selva is undulating. However, in greenhouse conditions, it often has an almost continuous character.

Despite the strength of the peduncles, many berries lie on the ground due to their weight.

This strawberry gives a full harvest no more than three years, after which it is necessary to replace the plantation, therefore, rejuvenation, in fact, needs to be carried out annually. In the second and third years, up to 1 kg of berries are harvested per season from one bush.

Selva berries are cone-shaped. When ripe, they are bright red, shiny, but pink fruits are also possible. In the first wave of fruiting, they are large, sometimes even reaching a mass of 80 g, in subsequent ones they gradually become smaller, but the number of berries increases. The pulp is very dense, aromatic, sweet and sour taste. Fruiting and characteristics of berries depend little on the length of daylight hours. The maximum yield occurs in the middle of summer, the last time the berries are removed before frost. It is noticed that the early berries are not the sweetest, the maximum sugar content is in the July harvest. The berries tolerate transportation well, they are stored for a long time without losing their appearance and taste.

The Selva strawberry tolerates severe frosts, but does not react well to long winter thaws. Shelter for the winter is not necessary in all regions. The variety has a very high disease resistance.

Berry appearance

The berries of the Selva strawberry cannot be called particularly elegant: they have the most common appearance, conical, but rather large, and in the first harvest some specimens are very large, reaching a diameter of 3 cm.They can be pink or red in color. Seeds are usually yellowish in color, small, do not protrude above the surface of the berries. The main reason for the commercial use of the variety is not the spectacular appearance of the berries, but their good preservation.

Selva berries have a common appearance, they do not represent anything outstanding in shape or color.

Advantages and disadvantages, features, differences from other varieties

The most important feature of the Selva strawberry is its extremely high disease resistance, which does not cause problems during cultivation: only in commercial gardens, preventive treatments are carried out, and amateur gardeners try to do without these procedures. The popularity of the variety is due to its following advantages:

  • high frost resistance;
  • ideal disease resistance;
  • the possibility of year-round greenhouse cultivation;
  • stable fairly high yield;
  • nice appearance of flowering and fruiting bushes (they are often used for design purposes as well);
  • large-fruited;
  • versatility of crop use;
  • transportability of berries.

This strawberry cannot be called ideal: it also has significant drawbacks, for example:

  • excessive acidity of berries;
  • a short period of plantation life (after the 3rd year it already bears very poorly).

Among the available remontant varieties, it seems that one can choose those that surpass Selva in some characteristics. So, the large-fruited California Monterey strawberry is characterized by much more tasty berries, however, it is less frost-hardy. The taste of berries is better in the domestic Garland, but the variety is not all-weather. The wonderful Czech variety Rujana bears fruit with much smaller berries, but all other characteristics are excellent. The American San Andreas variety is more productive, but capricious to weather conditions. In general, the Selva strawberry is a very good remontant variety with its pros and cons.

Using berries

Selva berries have universal application. At the same time, it is believed that this variety is for those who prefer sour. Fresh, not everyone likes them, but the variety wins in all kinds of blanks. And jam, and jam, and compotes from the berries of this strawberry are very tasty. Due to the high density of the fruits, they tolerate freezing well, but only after defrosting they become even more acidic.

Selva berries keep their shape well in jam

Growing features

Selva strawberries can be propagated in all available ways, but since it forms a sufficient number of whiskers, rejuvenation of plantations is carried out mainly by planting rooted rosettes. The best planting dates are the end of April or the beginning of May, with the onset of warmth. The variety does not impose any special requirements on the composition of the soil, and also on the preparation of the beds. The more sunlight the Selva berries get, the tastier they will be. The soil should be slightly acidic, loose, well fertilized. Between the bushes in a row, leave 25-30 cm, between the rows - 50-60 cm.

The variety does not require anything special in its care: weeding, loosening, and in the absence of regular rains, watering are necessary. In no case should the beds be swamped. Top dressing is given 3-4 times per season. In the spring, emphasis is placed on nitrogen, using urea, after the first wave of fruiting, strawberries are fed with mullein infusion. After the second fruiting, it is best to take an infusion of wood ash, and sprinkle humus or compost between the rows before wintering. Throughout the summer, they try to keep the garden bed under a layer of mulch, best of all - clean chopped straw.

When harvesting, you should try not to damage the peduncles. The last berries are harvested already before frost, after which the main part of the leaves is carefully cut off and the strawberries are covered for the winter. In the southern half of the country, Selva's shelter is not required; in the middle lane it can be easy. In the north, the layer of coniferous spruce branches may require 2-3 layers of non-woven material. The presence of a shelter for the winter solves to a greater extent the issue of not protecting from frost, but saving the acceptable condition of the bushes in the event of winter thaws.

Reviews of strawberries Selva

The Selva strawberry is a very good remontant variety of American selection. It cannot boast of an excellent berry taste, but it is extremely disease-resistant, and also tolerates adverse weather conditions well.

The benefits of garden strawberry Asia include:

  1. mid-early ripening
  2. yield
  3. no problem with pollination
  4. extended fruiting
  5. beautiful berries
  6. universal use
  7. keeping quality
  8. resistance to many diseases
  9. transportability

The variety also has disadvantages:

  1. insufficient frost resistance of the Asia variety
  2. high demands on feeding
  3. for mass reproduction, you need to divide the bushes
  4. sensitivity to anthracnose, powdery mildew.


Modern strawberry varieties are quite resistant to most pests and diseases, but they require some care. The most common plant ailments:

  • black and gray rot that affects berries, leaves, flowers, peduncles and most often appears in rainy weather. Visually, rot has the appearance of a gray or black bloom. The main control measure is the correct agricultural technique, do not thicken the plantings

  • white and brown spot - affects all plant organs. At first, the spots are red-brown, then they begin to darken. The affected organs may die. The main control measure is fungicide treatment
  • strawberry mite - common, carried by the wind. Damaged leaves wrinkle, become yellow-oily and die off, and the bushes become smaller (decrease in size). To destroy the tick, they are treated with colloidal sulfur, Aktofit and Actellik preparations.

Other types of diseases (verticillary wilting, powdery mildew, late blight rot, etc.) are less common. Control measures are the same as for the diseases described above.


Late and rare varieties

Strawberries, depending on the variety, can bear fruit not only at the beginning, but also in the middle of summer. To enjoy the taste of these juicy berries for as long as possible, you need to plant not only early and mid-season varieties, but also late ones on the site. Since it is they who give the harvest from mid to late July. It is best to plant one or two varieties of such berries.

The most popular types of late strawberries are the following:

  1. Bohemia... This plant tolerates drought well and does not require special care. At the same time, it gives tasty and sweet fruits that are well and long stored.
  2. Alpha... It is one of the most popular late strawberries. It is well suited for those who make a lot of twists from this berry. The fruits have the correct shape, they are shiny and without a neck. Their flesh is juicy and rather dense.
  3. Carnival... This species tolerates severe frosts well and gives an excellent harvest. The berries themselves are medium in size and work well for freezing.
  4. Carmen... The plant has tall and vigorous shrubs. The first berries are quite large, and with constant harvest they become smaller. These strawberries yield a good harvest even during cold and rainy summers.
  5. Shelf... This variety bears fruit for a whole month. The strawberries themselves are attractive and medium in size. But in a dry summer, it needs additional abundant watering.

The type of strawberry is very popular among gardeners, which is called Pandora... And all due to the fact that the berries of this plant have the best taste of all late varieties. The fruits themselves are not very large, they are of the correct shape and have an excellent aroma. But for the winter, the bushes are best covered, as they do not tolerate severe frosts particularly well.

Many experienced gardeners also grow rare types of strawberries on their plots. These include all varieties of this berry that are not red, but, on the contrary, white. The most popular white-fruited varieties are Anablanca, Pineberry and White Swan. These varieties are hybrids, but care for them is almost the same as for regular strawberries. But they only reproduce with a mustache.

When growing a culture in summer cottages, you do not need to be afraid to experiment. On the contrary, you need to look for new approaches and try to select varieties that are best suited to natural conditions.

And if strawberries are provided with correct and timely care every season, then they will certainly delight with their delicious and sweet fruits for many years.

The best varieties of Victoria - as we would say in the Urals, this is what garden strawberries are called here. In some regions, this berry is called strawberry, so let's immediately agree that under the name victoria, strawberry, garden strawberry, we mean the same berry.
