Short Description

'Archer' is an exceptional early mid-season strawberry. It produces large berries featuring very aromatic, delicious flavor.

 

Abstract

Professor Weber selected 'Archer' in 2001 from the first field he planted at Cornell's NYSAES in Geneva, NY, and it has been under field evaluation for many years. Final field testing was done on the farms of members of the New York State Berry Growers Association.

 

Fruit characteristics:

  • Very aromatic, delicious flavor
  • High yield
  • cold-hardy
  • Tolerant to root rots
  • Ripens 5-6 days before ‘Jewel’
  • Holds large fruit size through multiple harvests for 2-3 weeks
  • Fruit maximum size 45 g+ (comparable to plum fruit)
  • Largest average fruit size across 20 varieties tested at Cornell University’s New York State Agricultural Experiment Station (NYSAES) in Geneva, NY

 

Potential Applications

June-bearing variety suited for growers in NY as well as in places like Michigan and Minnesota and along the Mid-Atlantic from Maryland into the Northeast.
