Larger wild strawberry- big flavor
'Intensity' is the best selection we have found in searching for a larger wild berry, noted for its intense, rich and full fruit flavor. Intensity has an extended ripening over a 2-week period. With excellent tolerance to shade, the leaves produce a deep green color and fruit in light shade. This strawberry is taller growing reaching 12” in height in good soils. We have had excellent success with producing berries from it every year for over 15 years. Good runner production creates a thick strawberry bed and crowns that produce well after 5 years. Southern Michigan genotype.
For something very close to this runner produced selection, I recommend our Woodland strawberry Ecos selection which is grown from seed produced from 'Intensity'. Currently in production for fall of 2017.
