Fortuna strawberry still dominates in Huelva

The Fortuna strawberry variety continues to dominate production of the fruit in Huelva, Spain. A study by IFAPA shows that the very early Fortuna variety accounts for 39.4% of the plants transplanted from nurseries (compared to 37% in the previous campaign). The second most implanted variety is the Rociera, which has expanded very rapidly in the last campaigns, reaching 26% of strawberry plants in 2018/19. Rociera is also an early variety and offers high yields as well as good Brix and fruit firmness.

The third place is occupied by the Victory variety (10.5%), slightly down from last season (11.8%). In fourth and fifth places are Rabida (6.8%) and Primoris (4.1%). This last variety has declined a lot in recent years, despite presenting a medium-high firmness and a very high level of Brix, although much of its production is in the second commercial category.
