Elsanta can be used for all types of cultivation, indoor as well as outdoor, and from early to fairly late. The variety is also highly suitable for vegetable gardens. Elsanta is grown in large parts of Europe. However, in contrast to Sonata, Polka and Korona, Elsanta is sensitive to winter frost. This variety is susceptible to the following diseases: wilt (Verticillium), crown rot (Phytophthora cactorum), red core disease (Phytophthora fragariae) and fruit rot (Colletotrichum). Elsanta is somewhat susceptible to mildew (Sphaerotheca mac.).
