Abstract

Controlled environment, greenhouse cultivation of Sweet Charlie strawberries is technically an effective method to target niche winter markets. Supplemental lighting can help to accelerate fruit maturation, and to encourage a greater number of smaller fruit earlier in the season. Unless yield per plant can be drastically increased, achieving an economically viable system will require a planting density approaching 30 plants m-2.
