‘St-Jean d’Orléans’ is a new June bearing strawberry cultivar (Fragaria x ananassa Duch.) released by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Horticultural Research and Development Center, Québec. ‘St-Jean d’Orléans’ was introduced because it has large, very firm, light red, shiny fruit, with excellent shelf life and resistance to leaf diseases. ‘St-Jean d’Orléans’ is a selection resulting from a cross between ‘L’Acadie’ and ‘Joliette’. ‘St-Jean d’Orléans’ is recommended for eastern central Canada, especially in areas where the climate is similar to that of Québec (winter temperatures down to -30°C and warm and humid summers with unpredictable mixture of sun and rain). Non-exclusive multiplication licenses can be obtained from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, or from Meiosis Ltd. (Bradbourne House, Stable Block, East Malling, Kent, UK ME19 6DZ.
