‘Laurel’, a short-day strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa Duchesne ex Rozier), has been tested by growers in the Atlantic Provinces since 1999 and commercially introduced in Canada in 2012 by the Atlantic Food and Horticulture Research Center of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. ‘Laurel’ produces medium yields of large, aromatic, flavorful fruit ripening in the midseason, offering growers a cultivar especially suited to please pick-your-own and direct marketing customers. Plants of ‘Laurel’ are vigorous, resembling ‘Cavendish’ in habit, and they produce ample runners to establish matted rows. Plants are highly resistant to red stele root rot disease (incited by Phytophthora fragariae Hickman var. fragariae) andmoderately resistant to several leaf diseases.
