ABSTRACT

This study was conducted in order to evaluate the productive potential of strawberry cultivars in a representative region of Alto Jequitinhonha - Brazil. The experiment was conducted at farm Mape Frutas Ltda, located in the municipality of dates, MG, in randomized block design with eight strawberry cultivars in four replications to verify the production of seedlings and fruit. Counting of production of stolons and seedlings was performed at 180 days after planting. The assessment of variables related to fruit production was done twice a week from May to October 2012. Cultivars of short days (Festival, Campinas, Toyonoka, Dover, Oso Grande and Camarosa) and day neutral (Diamante and Aromas), only Toyonoka showed the lowest performance for the variables. The significant superiority of the cultivars Camarosa and Festival for virtually all variables allows recommends it for regions with similar climatic edaphic characteristics of the region where the experiment was conducted. Among the cultivars, the earlier tended to have higher performance for variables related to fruit production.
