PLANT: the plant is vigorous and moderately productive. Syria prefers a continental climate and is suitable for fresh consumption. Its fruit consistency, red flesh and the high and constant Brix degree have made this variety particularly interesting for the transformation industry producing yoghurt and fruit juices.
FLOWERING AND PICKING: intermediate flowering (+5 days Alba), medium picking (+6 days Alba).
FRUIT: Medium large fruit (24 g), conical-elongated shape, very attractive, bright red skin and red flesh. Syria is well appreciated by consumers thanks to the excellent organoleptic characteristics (7,5-10 Brix°) and to the long shelf-life. This type of fruit is always a synonym of a sweet and firm fruit, particularly suitable for the transformation industry (jams, confectionery,…).
AGRONOMIC ADVICES: Early transplant is suggested. Fruit may darken in very high temperatures. Syria is susceptible to Xanthomonas fragarie (Bacterial leaf spot).
