A very popular strawberry with excellent flavor.

This superior variety will supply you with quarts of large, deep-red strawberries for pies, shortcake and your favorite preserves. Earliglow is the berry frequently planted by “u-pick” farms because of their pleasing shape, beautiful ruby-like color and of course, terrific taste. The plant are robust, fast growers and send out many runners that keep your crop going, year after year. Resistant to verticillium wilt and red stele root-rot. Cold-hardy. Ripens in June. Self-pollinating.

  1. Tim Forsyth

    These produced well the first year and are loaded with berries in year 2. The berries are delicious and we are very happy with the purchase!

    I ordered 50 root stock of earliglow strawberries. When I opened them they were completely covered over with a white spiderweb type mold. I planted them anyways and contacted Starkbros. They kindly resent, but his time when received the once green or growing tops were completely a rotting mushy mass, mostly maroon colored. In contrast, I had also ordered 50 sparkle roots. They arrived in the same box and packaging and were healthy with green shoots already peeking out. I beleive every one lived and lookes great!! I do not recommend earliglow from Starks. Packaging or product failure… unkown.

    The review is more for the service than the product, When i received the first batch they had mold on them, I was skeptical but I planted them anyways to see what happens, well a week later and nothing but more mold on the plants, contacted StarkBros and they shipped replacement RIGHT AWAY, these were much healthier than the last, nothing but good things to say about StarkBros.

    Planting strawberries last season water properly I thought but did not take ended up all dying. Was not satisfied with that order

    I ordered a 25-pack of bare-root Earliglow strawberry plants. They arrived promptly and were packaged well, however, more than half the root crowns were black and slimy! Despite my reservations, I planted them anyway and to no one’s surprise they were in fact dead. The healthy plants are growing well but the others are D-E-A-D, dead. This was a good deal, on sale for 10 bucks, but still, I should have received viable plants not rotten leftovers.

    Company sent berries on time for us to plant and we did. They started off well but all of them ended up dying. We had an excessive amount of rain last summer and I think they just couldn’t handle it. Expensive lesson learned!

    Great product and customer service. Highly recommended !

  8. Walter Lalime

    Have considerable experience planting various berries. Found 14% mother plants with multiple roots; most others had only 2 roots (2nd generation daughter plants) and were not mother plants as advertised. Had to buy 60% new plants from local source to complement plants that were shipped. Will not reorder more plants.

  9. Cat Cat

    Wonderful taste. Much better than store bought. Very prolific and harvesting many strawberries this 2nd year.


    best looking plants of all upon arrival however, all but three plants died. The surecrop and allstar are doing fine.
