Bouche de Betizac' (C. sativa × C. crenata) is an open-pollinated seedling of the French cultivar 'Bouche Rouge' and a pollen relative of C. crenata. It was introduced to the United States by Craddock and Pellegrino (1992). Grafted trees have been widely planted in the western United States, but not in the Midwest. The tree has vigorous, upright growth. It tolerates the heat of California's Central Valley very well, but it also performs well in cooler climates. Nuts fall mid-season in warm climates. The 'Bouche de Betizac' is sterile in terms of pollen. It produces very large, dark brown nuts that peel well and have a good flavor. The ramets from the UMCA depot have a nut size ranging from 20 to 25 g. Three nuts are standard per strawberry (Nave, 1998). The nuts located in the center of the branches are generally flat. The variety 'Bouche de Betizac' presents field immunity against the Asian wasp (Torello-Marinoni et al., 2018). Grafted trees have been widely planted in the western United States, but not in the Midwest. 'Bouche de Betizac' plants were planted in the Midwest, but with moderate expectations because they were pollinated with C. sativa. Plant with Marsol, Marigoule or Precoce Migoule for pollination.
