A new release from UC-Davis, fruit is long, conical firm and crisp with excellent flavor. The plant grows upright with moderate runners, great for use in a hanging basket. Great for fresh eating, jams and freezing. Resists verticillium wilt & phytophthora crown rot. Zones 4-9.
Have you ever fantasized of having luscious red ripe strawberries all year long? We love these two types to plant along side each other. The everbearing variety bears a full crop in spring and start bearing again in early fall, with the June-bearing variety filling in the gap with an early summer crop. Plant enough to have some to eat fresh, freeze for winter cooking, and don't forget the jams!
There are two systems used for strawberry culture: the matted row used with June strawberries, and the hill system used with Everbearing or Day-neutral varieties (more details available here). Plant in full sun in a fertile, medium texture, well-drained soil. Set plants 18 - 24 in. apart in the rows with the crown just at the soil line. Mulch heavily to ward off weeds and to keep fruit from being exposed to soil borne diseases. Pinch off blooms the first season. Healthy plants will produce an abundance of berries for three to four years, after which they should be replaced
