Recommend strawberry and apricot varieties for Northern Cal?
I'm looking for advice on strawberry and apricot varieties to plant. I'm in Campbell, CA (near San Jose).
For strawberries, I'm planning to plant quite a few. In shady areas, I'll plant some Fragaria Vesca. In my sunnier, raised bed spots, I'll plant regular strawberries, both short-day and day neutral. From research, if looks like I should try Seascape and Sequoia. Any other recommendations? I'll be growing organically, so fungus resistant is a plus. And for qualities, I'm all about the FLAVOR! I don't care so much about size or appearance.
For apricots, I'm going to do a multi-tree planting in a small area. I know one tree will be a Blenheim. For the second tree, I'd like something that will extend my apricot season a bit, either before or after the blenheims. And again, I care most about the flavor, not the size. I don't want an aprium, plucot, or Turducken. I want a good, honest fruit that tastes like an apricot. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
