Everbearer Day Neutral
Fruits throughout spring, summer, and fall, even when temperatures are over 90 degrees. Large berries with outstanding flavor. Recommended for freezing, but wonderful fresh from the harvest! Works well in hanging baskets. Eversweet™ shows very good results all over the USA.
Strawberries are extremely adaptable and are grown in every state in the U.S. Plants generally grow 6”–8” tall and 12” across, are shallow–rooted, and benefit from mulch such as straw, pine needles, or plastic. Prefer a soil rich in all the basic nutrients with a pH of 6–6.5. Susceptible to root rot and must be planted in well-drained soil, with crown set at soil level. Yield under the best of conditions is about one basket per plant per season. June bearers generally produce a single large crop in spring to early summer (as early as March in warmer regions) and are prolific producers for 3 to 4 weeks. Pick the blossoms off June Bearers the first year to boost production the second year. Ever bearers are not as prolific as June bearers but are especially suitable for growers who wish to harvest a constant supply of berries throughout the summer. Plant some of both to have a large harvest to preserve, and plenty to eat all summer!
Full Box Quantities The plant count of a full box is 1500. If you buy a box, you will end up paying only $0.10/plant.
The plants that arrived were in good condition and all are under a grow light producing new leaving every couple of days. My only problem is there was supposed to be 25 in the bundle and there were only 24 plants. I did check to make sure two weren't stuck together. So, I think the packers should check carefully the number, because even one plant missing is lots of strawberries for the season...I'm alittle disappointed. :(Review by Dana (on 2/16/13)
