Strawberries are a tricky crop, mainly because of its historical genetic development which dictates its requirements for successful plant development and high production.

SB developed from a genome that adapted itself to certain climatic conditions in the Northern hemisphere which forced it genetic evolution to sustain cold winters and to transform into fully mature and productive plant in short time spell, to reach its peak production when temperatures are still moderate and produce runners (Vegetative reproduction) when temperature are not suitable and support fruit production. The cold winter and short day light forcing the plant to dormancy , a phase vital for its recovery in spring since new crowns are formed during the dormancy stage.
