Best Strawberry Varieties For Hydroponics
There are many varieties of strawberries that you can grow hydroponically. This is because the hydroponic technique for growing strawberries involves growing the strawberry plants in a soilless system, where a nutrient-rich solution is delivered to the roots of the plants to provide them with all of nutrients they need. The most common medium used in hydroponics is rockwool, which is a substance that has outstanding water retention capabilities and provides excellent ventilation for plant roots. These characteristics make it ideal for growing strawberries hydroponically.
The following are some strawberry varieties that you can grow hydroponically:
All Season Strawberry
The All Season is a hybrid strawberry plant, with the flowers opening at all times of day. This means that it will produce fruit in all seasons, except winter. It’s also a day-neutral variety, which means that you’ll get bigger yields from your All Season strawberries than other varieties that require long days for flowering and fruiting.
This makes it an excellent choice for growers who want to grow strawberries year-round in greenhouses or indoors under artificial lights. It can be grown outside during warm summer months as well, but will stop producing in late fall until spring comes again the following year.
Alpine strawberries are a good choice for anyone who lives in a cold climate, as they can survive temperatures as low as 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Alpine strawberries produce sweet fruit similar to the wild alpine strawberry (Fragaria vesca), which grows in northern Europe, Siberia and North America. Alpine strawberries are easy to grow in containers or greenhouses and make good additions to any home garden.
Alpine White Strawberries
Alpine White Strawberries are a high-yielding variety with a sweet, delicate flavor. These are the type of strawberries you want to serve on your dinner plate or use in your morning pancakes. They’re also perfect for fresh eating, freezing, and preserving because their great taste holds up well when frozen or canned—and they look beautiful in any dish! Alpine White Strawberries are an excellent variety for containers and hanging baskets as well as traditional planting.
American Wild Strawberries
American wild strawberries are native to North America, and they can be grown in warm climates. They grow well in a greenhouse and can also be grown indoors. These plants will grow in any hydroponic system or container, including strawberry pots.
Ananasa Pineapple Strawberry
The Ananas strawberry is a cross between the Fragaria x ananassa and Fragaria chiloensis. It is a good choice for growing in hydroponic systems, as well as in a greenhouse or outdoors. The leaves of this variety are darker green than many other strawberry plants, which can make them difficult to spot among other plants in your garden.
The Ananas berry has small dark red fruits that have a pineapple flavor and are delicious when eaten fresh from the plant or cooked into pies and jams. The berries grow to about 1 inch long and ripen slowly over several weeks during late summer and early fall seasons in U.S., Canada and Europe
Banana Cream Strawberry
The banana cream strawberry is a very sweet berry and produces heavy crops. The plants are very productive, with fruit ripening in clusters throughout the summer. They are resistant to powdery mildew, red stele, verticillium wilt and botrytis as well as other diseases that can affect strawberries.

The fruit is sweet and has a dark red color. They are vigorous, early-bearing plants that do well in both hydroponic and soil-based growing systems.
Blanchetta strawberries are a cross between a raspberry and a strawberry. The Blanchetta variety grows well in the hydroponic system and is commonly found in greenhouses and polytunnels.
Blue Moon Strawberry
Blue Moon is a hybrid strawberry variety that produces large, sweet berries. Blue Moon is a good choice for growing in hydroponics because it has high yields and can be grown under high-intensity lighting. This variety is also well-suited to greenhouse cultivation and can be planted in gardens or containers.
Blue Moon was developed by Driscoll’s in the 1980s as an alternative to its popular variety Del Sol. It has smaller fruit than Del Sol but larger fruit than other varieties such as Camarosa or Darselect (all of which are good choices for hydroponic growing).
Cabernet strawberries are a cross between a wild strawberry and a domestic strawberry. They are an excellent choice for people who want to grow their own strawberries, as they are fairly easy to maintain and produce well in hydroponic setups.
Carolina Pineberry Strawberries
You can grow Carolina Pineberry Strawberries in a wide variety of environments. They’re a good choice for hydroponics, greenhouse growing, high tunnels and field grown plants.
If you’re growing in an open-air environment they’ll do best with a little shade during the summer months and full sunlight during the winter months. If you live near the coast or near mountains be aware that pineberries are sensitive to humidity levels and may need extra ventilation devices such as fans installed on them if it rains often in your area (or if there are nearby mountains).
Cassis de Bordeaux Strawberries
Cassis de Bordeaux strawberries are the best variety for growing hydroponically, as they can withstand a wide range of conditions and produce high yields. They also work well in greenhouses and will do well in a cold climate. The strawberry’s low-maintenance requirements make it ideal for people who don’t have a lot of time to spare in their gardens or other growing spaces.
Cassis de Bordeaux strawberries are one of the easiest varieties to grow because they don’t require much watering or fertilizing; however, if you want bigger berries then you should add some compost tea every few weeks during the warmer months. If your goal is just to enjoy fresh strawberries all year round, then this is by far your best option!
