Cavendish strawberry, which originates in Nova Scotia, is the result of a cross between two varieties known for their winter hardiness and attractive, large fruit. It produces high yields that ripen over a long growing season. Excellent flavor and overall quality of the fruit makes this variety a good choice for commercial and home use. Cavendish is highly resistant to red stele and has some resistance to Verticillium wilt.

Very good, but I would reserve "excellent" for the best. I found Cavendish to be just a bit lacking in "strawberry" flavor and sweetness. Very productive. Good disease resistance. Moderately uniform in size.

I loved the taste of these. Different than typical strawberry taste, but delicious and sweet. Nice size too.

Excellent berries! Flavor was fantastic! Started the bed Spring of ‘18...already doubling in size!
Not only do I give two thumbs up to the berries, but Nourse Farms is awesome! I purchased raspberry brambles also and am head-over-heals pleased with those many huge, delicious berries the first year I have had to resort to sharing with my neighbors!!

First year planting. Produces strong plant and sister plants. Will see how they overwinter and yield in 2019. Plant stand was 98% plus. Good quality plants.

Not too happy with these. Same treatment as Galletta and planted at same time. Not doing well at all. Sorry I didn't get all Galletta, but will see how they do after the winter in the Spring. If not I will get rid of them and try something else. Maybe they don't like my soil or all the rain we have been having in Connecticut this summer?

Cavendish did not ripen evenly (over two years) in Indianapolis area, heavy clay. Would never plant again. Over the years Good luck with Earliglow, Jewel, Allstar, Sonata and Sparkle.

Cavendish did not ripen evenly in mid Missouri area,called nourse and talked to person that told me Cavendish plants do not do well in hot weather. Will not order again because we have a lot of hot spring weather.This information should be in description.
