Abstract


Strawberries are an important fruits because of their high content of essential nutrients and beneficial phytochemicals. This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of soilless culture growing media on biochemical characteristics (TSS, TA, vitamin C, anthocyanin and pH) of strawberry cultivar Gavieta. The experiment was carried out in a factorial base on randomized complete design with three replications Results of this experiment showed that almost the best percentage of biochemical characteristics of fruits was observed in vermicompost + perlite + cocopeat (30:60:10) without chemical fertilizer treatment. Based on the experiment, pruning waste can be useful for producing good strawberry taste and increasing.
