Rutgers Scarlet is a new release from the Rutgers breeding program. This variety features outstanding berry quality with exceptional flavor. In our trials we experienced some unpollinated blossoms which resulted in only a moderate yield for Rutgers Scarlet. This was offset somewhat by a high percentage of saleable berries that are firm with an attractive deep red color, slightly conical shape, and some of the best flavor out of any of the varieties that we offer! The flavor and overall quality of Rutgers Scarlet should result in return customers who are seeking premium quality strawberries.

Reviews

The Rutgers Scarlet were a bit if a dissapointment compared to my other plantings over the years. Yield was low and size ran quite small after the earlier picking. I will be ordering again near the first of January and will possibly try Cabot and a second variety. As always, your service and plants have been top notch.

Last year's plants didn't make it through the winter. My fault as I used wrong hay to cover over winter and it smothered most of the plants. Reordered this year, so far so good. I will use salt hay this year and hope for a better outcome.

I received your Rutgers Scarlet plants in excellent condition and at the right time. They had been in the ground for over a month and doing very well, until I left the garden gate open for about a half hour one morning. Mule deer got in and stripped all my strawberry plants of leaves and pulled up about seven plants. I replanted the seven and gave them all some TLC. They all survived. I am still removing blossoms and runners in anticipating great strawberries next year.
