Sweeten Berries with Bembe
Posted July 24, 2017
Are your strawberries and other berries less than super sweet? Sweeten them with a simple step of Bembe Sweet & Dandy!
Bembe is a liquid concentrate that is precisely designed with a complex array of natural sugars which can help plants achieve enhanced sweetness qualities, while providing a food source for the microbial populations at the root zone.
When strawberries, raspberries, boysenberries and blackberries first begin to bud, apply Bembe every other week until harvest, drenching the root zone thoroughly at the rate of 1 tablespoon per gallon of water. Plants can easily and quickly absorb the nutrients.
Our own results:
We tested two strawberry beds, both Camarosa Strawberries (June bearing). Both beds had compost applied in the early spring. One with Bembe and one without. We definitely tasted the difference. Sweet for sure! But also noticed an increase in size on the strawberries used with Bembe. Of course this would be from the ingredients of seabird and bat guano and the worm castings that would help the strawberries to become a nice healthy size.
This is exceptional to use when growing strawberries in containers as well!
