Product description

The strawberry tree doesn’t produce real strawberries, but strawberry-like fruits. The fruits’ colour fade from yellow to reddish brown, they are about 2 cm wide and taste slightly sour. Around the Mediterranean Sea, these fruits are often used for wines and liquors, but also for making jam. De bush/shrub or small tree has a maximum height of 3 meters and is fully hardy. Because of its late bloom, a sheltered spot in the garden is recommended. This species is used to dry summers, and thus loves a sunny spot.

Sowing description: Sow seeds in sowing mix and let them rest 4-8 weeks in the refrigerator. After this cold period, set them at room temperature, which breaks the dormancy of most seeds. Germination occurs irregularly. If the germination doesn’t occur, you can put the seeds back into the refrigerator for the same period and start over.

Family: Ericaceae
Scientific name: Arbutus unedo
Common name: Strawberry tree

Makkelijk te kweken tuinplant. Een groot deel van de zaden komt op. Binnen groeien ze niet zo hard. Maar buiten gaat het hard. De eerste lichting houd ik nu nog even als kuipplant, maar hoop ik dit jaar nog in de tuin uit te kunnen planten. De tweede lichting gaat dit jaar als kuipplant naar buiten.

De zaden 7 weken in zaai en stekgrond buiten gezet in de winter. Na de 7 weken binnen gezet in een koude kweekkast in de vensterbank waar het veel zon zou krijgen. Na enkele dagen kwamen er al zo'n 5 op.
