  1. Lynn Baker

    The plants look great the berry yield is poor less then 10 quart from 25 plants in my option is unacceptable and the berry size is small and the berry is not very sweet

  2. Tim Forsyth

    I was amazed how many berries these produced in the first year, and they are absolutely loaded with berries in year 2! The kids love them, I can barely get them in the house before they are gone.

  3. Judy Rider

    The berries are beautiful but not very sweet so I was disappointed.

  4. Anthony Roth

    I live in zone 4b Minnesota, and these strawberries stood up to our brutal 2018 winter under a thick layer of straw. So far this spring, the plants are looking great and putting on foliage and flowers. I can’t wait for the berries in June!


    I just got these plants last year. I nipped the buds off so the plants would be stronger this year. Some plants didn’t make it through the Michigan winter. The ones that did look healthy. Can’t wait for it to warm up so we can have strawberries!!

  6. Donna Perry

    These are bare root plants but already plenty of leaves on when they arrived! Healthy and strong and produce very sweet berries.

  7. Betty Kreakie

    Despite following the instructions completely, none of my plants survived.

  8. Ralph Gaudio

    Unfortunately a big disappointment. Planted last year the plants failed to fill in the bed and were poor producers. I decided to give this variety a try and i5 was a big disappointment. Save your money.

  9. Diane Dachel

    The strawberries are fantastic. They are nice sized. They are sweet. We are eating them three times a day. Our daughter and son in law are also enjoying them. When I need more plants I know where to go. Thank you.


    Honeoye are dependable in our weather, surviving winter and not blooming super early, thereby missing frost. Love their flavor, and you do get at least a quart per plant!
