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 strawberry plant will produce 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.
It has good shelf life, consistent size and yield... it resists many problems that can affect 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.
Strawberry plant foliage is not pretty in the fall. Spring foliage turns brown and spotty, and then starts to drop. This is natural.
As the weather gets cooler, strawberry plants focus on developing deeper, fuller root systems... not fresh leaves. This helps them burst out with fruit in the spring.
This is why strawberry farmers typically plant in the fall.
