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.

Reviews

I have to say, I'm disappointed by Cavendish. I'm in Rhode Island and the berries grew fine, nice size/color/yield, but the FLAVOR was terrible. They were either sour or "watery"/mild and all berries had a strange bitter aftertaste! (I've never tasted that before in a strawberry.) I also grew Seascape and those are better. But I'm planning to take these out and replace with hopefully SWEET berries! Cavendish is not worth the effort!

Large fruit, excellent sweet flavor, doing well in sandy Cape Cod soil. Much better quality than Sparkle.

Did good growing and producing a first crop. All be it a slightly milder taste and smaller when compared to strawberries like the Annapolis it did have a few issues in 2019. Growing area was Central Minnesota and I must say, although they produced fair enough for their first year, the berries had problems such as if a spot was on the wet dirt (2019 was our wettest year on record) it wouldn't redden up and would mush before turning red so make sure you plant them in well draining areas. Other then this, they made a good berry and the plants were very vigorous and seemed to do well surviving last winter.

These are by far the best strawberries that I have grown ! The berries were large , tastes great and the plants did not need any special care .
I am planting a larger strawberry patch this year and plan to reorder this variety.

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.

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.

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?
