Tons of Strawberries... All Year Long!
Finally, a true everbearing strawberry! Typical strawberry plants bear once in summer. The old everbearing types produce fruit twice in a season.
But this variety produces tons of fruit from summer until frost!
These strawberries are day neutral. That means they have no awareness of day length, so they keep frantically producing strawberries until first frost.
Many even claim that this is the best strawberry they ever tasted.
When planted early enough, this plant will produce berries the same year. It is typically only grown for a year or two because it tires itself out with all that fruit. In the north it is usually grown as an annual.
You get a bundle of strawberry plants, ready to pack on tons of growth and produce plenty of berries!
It has good shelf life, consistent size and yield and is resistant to several diseases of typical strawberries.
Best if planted in raised beds or containers. Use organic all purpose fertilizer and give them lots of water. Strawberries have shallow roots, so they dry out quickly...and they hate to compete with weeds!
The flavor is best if the fruit is allowed to ripen on the plant, however watch out for birds and critters. They like strawberries too! Row covers are a good solution or a motion sensitive sprayer to scare them off.
Then pick and enjoy in pies, salads, dressings, dipped in chocolate or all by themselves!
