Strawberry Inspirations, 6 July, 2024 -

Taste and view the largest collection of strawberry varieties in the world in Poland

In Hornigi (near Warka, Poland), on Magdalena and Matusz Włodarczyk's farm, the world's largest collection of strawberry varieties in commercial production was created. It is a nearly two-hectare plantation on raised beds, where 40 varieties of strawberries have been planted. Most of them will soon be fruiting. You can see, taste and evaluate them on July 6, 2024, during the final meeting of Strawberry Inspirations (Truskawkowe Inspiracje) project.

"We wanted to choose varieties that would be best suited to our cultivation technology and climate. The project carried out together with Jagodnik website and magazine was an ideal opportunity for this. Moreover, thanks to close cooperation with partners of this project, we are constantly improving strawberry production technology," emphasizes Mateusz Włodarczyk, farm owner from Hornigi. Together with his parents and brothers, he grows strawberries on an area of ​​eight ha. The project partners are: UPL, Yara and Geo Polska, Agrimpex and Milex.

Two parts of plantations are currently being run as part of the project. The older one, composed of 10 late varieties, was established in August last year. It is currently in full fruition due to the acceleration of vegetation this season. The new plot, using single beds, looks impressive with 30 varieties of strawberries that were planted in the second half of May. These were frigo A++ seedlings, waiting beds and tray seedlings. Nursery material for the project was provided by the following nurseries: Agronom Berries, Geoplant Vivai, Hortplant, Kaack, Niewczas, Poland Plants.

"Currently, June 12, the plants are already blooming and during the meeting on July 6, most of them will be fruiting. The technology of growing strawberries is constantly evolving because it has to change to ensure higher yields, easier cultivation and the best fruit quality. By implementing this project, we show growers how to improve their production technology on their own farms," states Mariusz Podymniak from the website.

Truskawkowe Inspiracje in Hornigi is a unique project in Europe that includes presentations, workshops and practical demonstrations related to best practices in strawberry cultivation, regarding the use of fertilizers, plant care and innovative cultivation techniques.
