Mariguette® is an everbearing strawberry cropping from the beginning of July.
The berries are large and oblong in shape, orange-red in colour with a very shiny skin finish. The flavour has good sweetness with a high Brix index and a subtler fragrance than Mara des Bois. The shelf life and berry firmness are excellent.
Mariguette® has a high yield potential, better than Charlotte, particularly in spring production from a tray plant.
Plants are fairly robust with cupped spoon-like leaves. Mariguette® is well adapted to substrate production using tray plants.
