I have noticed that commercially grown strawberries have improved their taste noticeably, while getting ridiculously large berries that make picking so much more efficient.

Anybody know what variety or varieties they are???



Ditto on blueberries.


I'm in southern michigan and good soil and pH for these species.

Lastly, I now have a lovely 12' x 28' greenhouse/hoophouse and my initial experiments went well with tomatoes. But I did not get much yield per sq. foot. But these were indeterminate tomatoes that work well in the garden, not necessarily in the greenhouse.

Any recommendations for a flavorful and productive tomato that has been optimized for the greenhouse?

Aromas strawberries work good in or out of a green house. Very good flavor and stay healthy.

I was really impressed with the Legacy Blueberry. We had them in Containers (1/2 Quality Potting Soil + 1/2 Peat Moss) and they yielded well.
We were not in Michigan however, we were in Nor. Cal Zone 9. Maybe that info helped someone in Zone 9. Good luck Michigan friend
