Self-Pollinating

One of home gardeners’ top picks.

Honeoye has been a favorite for more than 30 years for its hardiness, consistency, appearance and exceptional flavor.

Honeoye propagates itself with numerous runners for future crops and is an all-around rugged plant. Cold-hardy. Ripens in June. Self-pollinating. A licensed variety of Cornell University.

  1. Pt Pt

    Wow, I couldn’t be happier! Shipping was fast. I took a chance ordering the strawberry berry plants in June. I watered the garden first then planted. The plants looked real nice with some green growth. A week later all 25 are leafed out. Thank you perfect!

  2. Kim Maxim

    I planted 50 bare root about 6wks back . 3 died but the other 47 have produced about a pint every 3 days . They are super tasty but small berries . Maybe next year the berries will be larger ?

  3. Marianne Leclerc

    Only 4 plants survived. Still in the first year so no idea how the taste is yet.

    I decided late in the season to plant a couple of small beds of strawberries to have for the Grandkids and myself too, so I order the Honeoye plants and planted them a couple of days later due to rain and working late. These were bare root plants and the visible foliage was a pale white to washed out green at the time of planting. Two days later they had dark green leaves and were actively growing! 1 week from time of planting I’m having to pick the blooms off of these plants, couldn’t have imagined that happening so quickly! Back in the mid to late 70’s my Dad had a Pick-Your-Own Strawberry business with 3-1/2 acres every year and another 1-1/8 acre field to replace the oldest patch the following year. He always got his Plants from Stark Brothers, so when I decided to put out some, I didn’t have to think of where to go to get quality plants. Thanks Stark Brothers for exceptional quality and now the enduring the temptation to let just a few blooms to mature to sample the full flavor of a vine ripened strawberry, that’s going to be tough!

    I also planted Ozark Beauty and Sparkle, but this variety performed the best. I’m getting perfect deep red berries full of rich strawberry flavor. They are much less sour/tart than the other two varieties which I like. The other plants look very vigorous/healthy and set lots of fruit but the quality is very low. Many of the berries are shriveled or damaged by insects. Not the Honeoye however. They have somehow escaped whatever is plaguing the others and produced amazing fruits in good quantity. I will focus on propagating this variety now. I live on the front range Colorado BTW.

    Did not survive the winter cold as was the other parts of my order

  8. Harry Graver

    Very Tart-Only good thing made a excellent syrup for ice cream

  9. Christopher Schrock

    I bought these strawberry plants at a discounted price in June. I planted them in 6” pots upon arrival in June and then transplanted them in a raised bed in mid October. The strawberry plants survived the winter did very well in their spring. I pinched off the blossoms and did allow them to set fruit in this their first spring.

    Currently picking our first crop of berries. Planted last June and mulched for winter in November. It reached 33 below zero here in northern Wisconsin last winter but bed survived and we are enjoying the fruits of our labor!
