The new double flower series in Strawberry Summer Breeze is considered by Dutch strawberry breeder ABZ Seeds as a new approach in ornamental strawberries. The rose-like double flowers are described as real eye-catchers. “This type of flowers keep their colour for a considerably longer period than the single types. The combination of abundant colour and fresh summer fruit will give the consumer the warm feeling of a summer breeze.”
Very few runners
The company which is dedicated to the development of F1-hybrid strawberries underscores that seeds of Summer Breeze germinate fast and uniform. In 6-7 weeks seedlings, they should develop into strong plug plants. “Strawberry Summer Breeze develops a compact plant with very few runners. The double flowers appear 5 to 7 weeks after transplanting.”

After summer 2018 flower colours pink and rose will be available. Summer Breeze Pink has a soft pink flower colour and Summer Breeze Rose has according to ABZ Seeds a sensational deep rose flower colour. Next years other flower colours will follow.
The two Summer Breeze strawberries will get a grand presentation at the European FlowerTrials 2018 (June 12-15).
