Our farms grow two strawberry varieties Seascape and Portola
Seascape strawberries are everbearing strawberries, which means they produce their delectable fruit throughout the growing season. The plants bear large, firm, brilliantly red fruit in the spring, summer and fall. According to most Seascape berry info, these strawberries are heat tolerant and disease resistant as well as being prolific producers. Their shallow root systems make them suitable not only for the garden, but for container growing as well.
Portola Strawberry Plant is a strong day-neutral strawberry variety from California. Fruit is lighter in color than most ever bearers and should be harvested before fully red. It has good flavor with a large crop. This variety will perform in warmer climates.
Our farms grow the polka raspberry variety which is a primocane raspberry variety from Poland. The plant is vigorous with a more upright growing habit than other varieties. Berries are large, very firm, and have good flavor. Polka is very productive and the fruit does not darken as much as other varieties. Ripens 7-10 days
Our farms have the blueray blueberries variety with sweet, light blue berries that begin to ripen in early to mid-July, this Northern Highbush cultivar is known as a great type to plant with other highbush types for cross-pollination.
Green foliage turns scarlet in the fall, with a 5-6-foot maximum height and 3 to 4-foot spread.
The mid-season ‘Blueray’ berries are known for being crack resistant, with a strong blueberry flavor and aroma, and firm flesh. This variety is known for overproducing, which means it will naturally set an abundance of fruit that can stress the plant, so it needs to be pruned regularly and carefully.
Sweet Yellow Passion Fruits
Our farms lie in Matuu, Yatta and Diani in the coast. Sweet yellow passion fruit yields more juice than the purple passion fruit. The strength of yellow passion is that it is more tolerant to the most critical disease reducing passion fruit productivity
