Cooking and seaming tips
To make the dishes the most delicious, it is important to choose the right main ingredient - rutabagas. It should be smooth, without dents. By weight, too light a fruit may indicate emptiness inside. Therefore, when choosing in a store, it is worth holding it in your hands and touching it.
At the beginning and at the end of conservation, it is necessary to sterilize the cans. This is done so that there are no microbes left in them and the workpieces are stored longer.
Before preparation, jars and lids are thoroughly washed with the addition of soda. Then sterilized over steam, in boiling water, or in an oven.
Advice... For such procedures, it is better to purchase special hot tongs. Towels and oven mitts do not keep the temperature for long.
After filling the cans, they are placed in a large saucepan or bowl of boiling water. Sterilized for 10-15 minutes. To cool down, turn it upside down - this allows you to make sure that the cans are completely sealed.
The main characteristics of the variety
Whether the remontant strawberry Elizabeth II will correspond to the varietal description depends on agricultural technology. She is very demanding on growing conditions, watering and feeding. But in order to eat berries with such excellent characteristics from early spring until frost, you can work hard.
Description of the bush, pollinators
Elizabeth 2 forms a compact upright bush up to 30 cm high. The leaves are semi-spreading, medium-sized, concave, with clearly marked denticles along the edge. The plate is wrinkled, glossy.
The number of whiskers is small, but significantly exceeds that of the mother variety Queen Elizabeth. Vegetative reproduction is quite possible. In one place, the variety can grow up to 4 years, but with abundant fruiting, a transplant is recommended after 3 years.
Buds of Elizabeth 2 are white, medium-sized, bisexual, collected in several pieces. The peduncles are spreading, noticeably shorter than the leaves, therefore, with a compacted planting, the fruits can shade and ripen poorly. Under the weight of the berries, they often lie on the ground.
Elizabeth 2 does not require the presence of pollinators, but it bears fruit better, and gives larger berries if another garden strawberry grows nearby. The varieties are well suited:
- Snow White,
- Vima Rina,
- Fragrant basket.
Description of berries
The berries of the garden strawberry Elizabeth 2 are large, oval, regular in shape, not even in size, with a noticeable neck. With repeated fruiting, they can stretch out, and the nose from rounded to become elongated. But all the same, they remain beautiful, which is clearly visible in the photo.
The average weight of fruits is 40-60 g, some of them reach 120 g. But the size of the berries will not be as large as that of the hollow Gigantella. The absence of a cavity inside, a dense structure and uniformity are varietal features characteristic of Elizabeth 2 strawberries.
The peel and juicy pulp are deep red, achenes are straw-colored, numerous. The taste of berries of the Elizaveta 2 variety is estimated at 4.7 points, sweet, harmonious, rich, with a barely noticeable sourness. The aroma is strong, strawberry.
Productivity, ripening time, transportability
The variety enters fruiting early. The mustache gives a crop, even without having time to properly root and separate from the mother bush. After planting on a new bed, only the first peduncles need to be removed.
If the buds that appeared in the fall, but did not have time to bloom well overwinter, even in the Middle Lane the first berries can ripen in late May - early June. The fruiting period of Elizabeth 2 is extended to frost.
The yield of the variety is on average 350 centners per hectare, which is a very high indicator. The first wave accounts for about 1/3 of the total number of berries. One bush per season can give 1.7 kg of fruit or more, from 1 sq. m is harvested, depending on the planting density, up to 10 kg.
The berries of the garden strawberry Elizabeth 2 are well stored and tolerate transportation without losing their marketable and consumer qualities. Ideal for freezing - keep their shape after thawing.
The Elizaveta Vtora variety is intended for fresh consumption and is suitable for all types of processing. It is not worth waiting for the berry to be whole in the jam - it is too large. To reduce heat treatment, thereby preserving the maximum of useful substances, it is recommended to cut the fruits.
Drought resistance and frost resistance
The drought resistance of Elizaveta Vtoraya strawberries is low. Although an adult bush remains alive for some time during the absence of rain and watering, it quickly loses its productivity. Flower arrows do not set, pollinated buds and ovaries dry out and fall off, berries stop pouring and stop developing, leaves die off.
Important! Whiskers die quickly in the absence of moisture. This is a significant loss for gardeners, as few of them are formed.
The heat resistance of Elizabeth 2 is also low. In the southern regions, after the first wave of fruiting, there is usually a long break. If single peduncles appear, the berries ripen poorly, since they are baked in the sun. The heat protection nets stretched over the bed do not help much. Fruiting resumes when the temperature begins to subside.
Average frost resistance of the variety - up to -23 ° С. Considering that the bush can leave in the winter with peduncles already beginning to move forward, it requires shelter even in warm regions. If protection is not put, strawberry Elizabeth 2 will overwinter normally, no worse than other varieties, but a super-early harvest is unlikely to give. Unless the winter was not cold, or there was always a thick layer of snow on the garden bed.
Disease and pest resistance
The variety is highly resistant to major crop diseases. He is rarely affected by:
- gray rot
- powdery mildew.
Pests are a real problem in the years of epizootics. Elizabeth 2 rarely suffers from strawberry mites, but she will have to be protected from slugs. Strawberries love abundant watering, if you do not mulch the soil, shellfish will become a problem.
Some gardeners do not carry out preventive treatments, hoping for a high resistance of the variety to diseases and pests. This is their mistake - gradually larvae, fungal spores and bacteria colonize strawberry bushes, planting material is transferred to a new bed already infected.
