Reviews gardeners about the variety of strawberries Temptation

  • Angela Shurko: "I bought this variety with the Ostara variety in the seed shop. There were only 10 seeds in the bag. I planted it, as indicated on the package, I did everything only according to the instructions. The seeds came out very badly, out of 10 pieces, only 6 of them hid, but survived only 4 bushes. Now they grow on level beds. Bushes are strong, beautiful, but I would not say that there are a lot of berries, there are more fruitful varieties. "
  • Sasha Nikitin: "The F1 Temptation grows strawberries with seeds. The variety is good, and yet only 15 of the 20 seeds purchased have grown. The yield is not bad, the bushes are resistant to many diseases, they respond well to temperature fluctuations and winter well. So this year I will buy 20 more pieces, but in the form of bushes, because the seeds are too much trouble. "
  • Ksenia Komarova: “I love temptation for the taste of berries and a pleasant aroma. When the berries ripen, the aromas are amazing. There is not enough harvest for sale, but for food and winter harvest more than enough. After cooking, the berries do not lose their taste. I also like to freeze strawberries the berries withstand this procedure better than many other varieties. In addition, after defrosting, they retain their shape and the taste remains good. "
