This is a French variety obtained from a cross between Mara des Bois and Cal 19, a Californian selection. Charlotte has very good hardiness and good productivity. Berries are blood red, heart-shaped and firm with a good shelf life.
Charlotte is a day-neutral variety of strawberry, which means it will produce fruit on a consistent basis throughout the season, rather than producing a large amount of fruit in a short period of time.
For best results, pinch off the flowers for the first ~4 weeks of growth to allow the plants to establish stronger root systems before allowing them to set fruit.
