Malwina strawberry, bred by Peter Stoppel in Germany, is a high quality, very late season variety (at least 7 days later than Record). Fruits are glossy and dark red having excellent flavor with high Brix readings. Berries are large and hold berry size well through the season. Regular pickings are suggested to maintain fruit firmness. With its very vigorous growth habit, nitrogen fertilizer needs to be managed to avoid excessive vegetative growth. Malwina shows resistance to mildew as well as tolerance to Verticillium wilt and red stele. Malwina is an excellent variety to extend the strawberry season.

My experience (planted 2018) has been quite the opposite of the previous reviews. Malwina has been a vigorous, hardy, and absolutely delicious strawberry. The 25 plants have been prolific with runners and huge berries (golf ball size +). The only minor drawback I have found is shelf life is very limited. I wish I could share pics of my harvests. For soil, I planted them in a virgin, loam top soil that I believe is around pH 6.5 and this may have been part of the growing success.

This is my third attempt at growing this variety.The problem I have is some kind of leaf disease which weakens the planting. It appears in the form of brown spots on leaves.I am trying moving to new garden in soil currently under black plastic for a year.I will watch carefully and use soapshield as a preventive. I am giving it one more try because of its outstanding flavor and its ability to extend the season into July.

Remember , malwina produce less runners than other varieties. In the home garden they could be planted staggered in a 3-4 foot wide row. That way you would get a fuller bed if you desire. We grow them at the standard matted row and they do fine. Probably one of the best tasting berries and no doubt the latest to ripen. I refer to them as the honeycrisp of the strawberry varieties. We can extend harvest well into July. We grow in the champlain valley in new york state

I got 25 Malwina plants in hopes of extending the strawberry season. 2018 was my first year to harvest them. I only got 3/4 gallon from one picking and no more. I will keep them one more season to see if they do better but I am not happy. I have two other varieties that are doing great. I have been growing strawberries for the last 65 years and Malwina is the worst I have grown. The plants look good. I would rate Marwing strawbrries zero

I had better hopes for this strawberry. It is not putting out runners. Maybe it propagates with just its root? It does not tolerate heat as well as Jewel. I am in zone 6b and the sun here is pushing its buttons. The next year will bring the final verdict but I am not too impressed so far.
