The sweet Albion strawberry has put South Australia on the map. It’s renowned for its fullness of colour and outstanding sweet flavour. The Albion variety was developed by the University of California. Ideal temperatures around mid-twenties to thirty degrees Celsius, plenty of water, control of disease pressure such as mite and thrips and a pretty scientific fertiliser programme are key to healthy plants and the best fruit.

There's no mention of the Sweet Albion either in that list from Strawberries Australia.

Red Gauntlet Strawberries are a Scottish variety and are suited to Sth. Aust. & Vic.

I'd forgotten what the 2 x strawberries I've had growing in the growbeds for 2 seasons now were because the labels are missing, they are Nelly Kelly, thanks Brian. :thumbright:

No worries joblow. They seem reasonably salt tolerant too.

I like the red ones the best
Yes some are salt tolerent but what happeng if you need to salt your system
In my last system i had strawberry in a tower and one plant had over 30 fruit on it but only for 1 year then salt eventually got them
Straight hydroponics is the way to go

Yeah if you needed to salt to 5-6 ppt I reckon most strawberries will keel over after a while. I try to keep my system water well under that.
