The Taste of the Carnival on a Tree!


The Cotton Candy Strawberry tree is a must for both the culinary and landscape lover. Besides the impeccable fruit, there are plenty of great reasons to have this unique tree…

• Heat and drought tolerant
• Little to no maintenance
• Adaptable to all soils
• Fast grower
• Blooms all summer
• High in nutrition

Your new Cotton Candy Strawberry Tree will have the neighbors (and the birds) flocking to your yard for a taste of its delicious fruits. Pure white blossoms of five petals (resembling the actual strawberry plant) reward the eye all summer before giving way to luscious red berries. The taste is just like cotton candy with tiny yellow seeds for a delightful crunch.

Good for the Kitchen and the Body
Get out your recipe books because your berries will make for numerous bounties. Try them in a tart, a pie, and even a smoothie. Despite the cotton candy taste, the berries are extremely good for you, with loads of Vitamin C, fiber, and calcium to boost the body.

What Maintenance?
Despite the gorgeous look and delectable berries, your Cotton Candy tree is virtually fuss free. This plant grows four feet a year and loves full sun. Soils are never an issue, but feel free to provide a well-drained soil if you have the time. Pests and disease rarely visit. Water regularly until established and feed it with an all-purpose organic fertilizer once in the spring. That’s it! Just have the baskets ready when berry season approaches.

Landscape Potential
If you live north of Zone 9, don’t worry. The Cotton Candy thrives wonderfully in containers for a great addition to the patio, and then you can move it easily inside during the winter. It’s also a great shade tree and will provide a stunning backdrop for flower gardens.

Get your Cotton Candy Strawberry Tree today and enjoy the (minimal) fruits of your labor!!
