    I’m so glad l made this purchase! This will be the second year we get to enjoy the spectacular bounty. We bought one pack of these and one pack of Ozark Beauty everbearers. Between the two we have berries all summer long. I probably could have gotten away with only one pack for my 16×4 foot bed because they really have flourished so nicely, however l wanted a variety and wanted to extend our growing season. Thanks Stark Brothers

    We live in update SC. The plants grew fairly well. Berries are small to medium sized and color is good. The flavor is not great– faintly floral and not very sweet. (We often get local grown which are MUCH better.) That’s really the most important aspect of strawberries and these don’t deliver.

  3. Ron Weatherman

    All three varieties that we purchased have grown into large, healthy, very productive plants that have given us large, sweet great tasting berries. They are all in bloom again.

    My strawberries are in their second year and they’re exploding out of their 4’x4′ box! There are too many blooms to count. Last year (their first summer) we pinched blooms off as directed. I could not be more impressed with their performance so far. We already have some fairly large green berries and it’s only mid-May! Can’t wait until harvest!

    I’m sure these work great somewhere else (I live in the southern Rockies). Maybe our soils are too alkaline or our frosts are too late or the site wasn’t great for this berry. But I’ve gotten almost nothing from these. The plants were very tall and put out runners but very few blooms or berries. The plants I got from the local hardware store are doing fabulous, so I’ll just stick with them.


    We plan to grow strawberries two years ago and last year they beared a lot of fuss nice big strawberries and we probably got at least 40 gallon off those and then it was only the second year we plan one year became in the next and they produced 50 gallons of strawberries this will be our second year of the producing and it looks to be that there will be just as heavy


    Nice berry sweet and juicy. Good production but very sensitive to late spring frost. Loss many early blossoms.


    A large, firm, sweet and extremely delicious berry. My wife and grandsons love them in their smoothies. Also they freeze very well. My best success is when I pull all the blossoms they year in which I plant this variety and then will have three very productive harvests. The year of the third harvest I put in a new planting and remove the old plants after I have picked the berries.

    I planted these thinking that they would bear 2 years down the road; boy was I wrong. I have strawberries the first year, I mean lot of strawberries on each vine I am so excited they are really getting bigger each passing day.

    Last year bought the strawberries from starkbros, pinched blossoms off last summer, this is the first season, strawberries are delicious and big, we had berries before May 1st. I would recommend this variety to everyone
