A NEW STRAWBERRY CULTIVAR 'SHENMEI 3#'
Shenmei 3# strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duchesne) offers growers in Shanghai and other areas with relatively mild winter and spring climates a short-day cultivar that is early fruiting and produces fruit that has a distinctively sweet flavor and is resistant to powdery mildew (caused by Podosphaera macularis). Fruits of Shenmei 3# ripen about one week later than Toyonoka, a Japanese variety that has been the standard short-day cultivar in Southeast China along the seaside, especially in the Chang Jiang River drainage area.
