Strawberry is an early species, producing at short time after planting, according to crop technology and variety. Strawberry growing is profitable by extending the ripening and delivering periods, using economically feasible techniques and new valuable varieties. Strawberry fruit quality is defined by several characteristics and is influenced by genetic factors, crop location and growing methods. The purpose of the study was to identify the Romanian strawberry growers’ needs, limitations and pathways in order to put forward the traits which can influence the choice of varieties by the strawberry growers, as a solution for their sustainability. The main limitation identified was the strawberry varieties used in their crops, beyond the dominance of unprotected consecrated crop technologies with low-density. In this respect we have highlighted some traits of strawberry varieties which can influence the future choices of Romanian growers: harvesting season, desired characteristics of fruit quality, and plant architecture related to production potential and stress factors.
