Huelva's strawberry producers keep betting on the Fortuna variety this year

Fortuna is the most planted variety in the province of Huelva this season, according to the initial report of the 2021/2022 campaign published by the Observatory of Prices and Markets of the Junta de Andalucia.

Last year, this variety by the EmcoCAL breeder was also the most planted strawberry variety in the province with 35.8% of the total implanted, a similar percentage to the one achieved in the 2019 /20 campaign (36.2%).

The report also highlights other varieties, such as Rociera, Rabida, Victory, and Savana. The Rociera variety was the second-most cultivated variety last season with 20.9%, even though its area decreased over the previous season when it reached 25.6%.

Among the novelties, the Marismela variety stands out.

According to the Andalusian Government's report, the first part of the strawberry campaign has been going on regularly, despite the many accidents that occurred in autumn. This is the time of year when the strawberry plantation period in the province of Huelva starts, where 90% of the national production is located.
