Main objective of this research is the test of some strawberry cultivars (Fragaria ananassa Duch.) cultivated to the low tunnels for some vegetative and physiological indicators. In searching was included two cultivars of strawberries introduced by Netherlands; Elsanta and Sonata, planted to the location of Skenderaj. Experiment is placed with random method with four repetitions. For every repetition are researched 25 plants x and 4 repetitions = 100 plants for each parameter.
The size of surface in which the experiment was putted 0.25 ha. All cultivars were grown on banks covered with silver polietilen foil in the form two – rows were putted in place. Planting distances of strawberries cultivars were 40 x 30 cm. Surface between tunnels was covered with stubble which constrains weeds activity. It is researched the number of crowns in cluster and cultivar which has realized a higher value for this parameter, it is emphasized Elsanta with the average value of 5.88. A lower height of cluster has Sonata cultivar (34.03 cm), but with higher value of the wildness of cluster (42.60 cm). A bigger general surface of leaves has Sonata cultivar (193.68 cm2). Elsanta cultivar has a smaller leaf surface (157.74 cm2), but with the average value higher than yield (18.26 t/ha). Distinguishes between the cultivars being researched for the parameters where significant distinguishes for both levels 0.05 and 0.01. These cultivars are preferred to be cuttivated for commercial purposes in low tunnels according to the Skenderaj conditions.
