Soft Strawberries
« on: September 09, 2019, 17:22 »
Hi,

For the last two years I have had problems with my strawberry plants.  At first they cropped good healthy strawberries.  I have thirty plants and initially harvested a kilo.  Then there was a heavy day of rain and they all went soft.  (In previous years I harvested a total of 3 K).  After the rain, outwardly thestrawberries looked fine, but when picking them they were all soft with no firm body to them. 

Reading on line suggests a disease, but I couldn't see any sign of mould so I don't think they had a disease. 

I wondering if the strawberries themselves absorb rain water (I didn't have straw under the berries), or if the plants just drank in too much?  Or is it a mysterious disease and I do need to dig them up and start again?
