Tropical strawberry is senstive to the sun

Strawberry only grows in cool places and it is very rare to see strawberries in tropical countries. Strawberry growers say that the plant enjoys the cool weather that it is like being induced to flower and bear fruits when the weather is cool. But when the temperature dips below 10 degrees centigrade, it can cause a little problem with the fruits and when it gets below 5 degrees centigrade you can expect the fruits to swell and crack.

Tropical strawberries can grow in hot climate. It can weather even 30 degrees centigrade.However, it cannot endure the hot temperature for long when it is directly hit by the sun. And since a tropical place doesn’t get temperatures below 10 degrees centigrade so it is only the heat that is the enemy. The solution is to plant the strawberries in pots so it can be moved to be exposed in the morning sun and to be placed in the shade after 2 to 3 hours so the plant can relax and enjoy the warm weather.
