Prized by professional chefs for their intense flavor.

Tristar berries are also beautiful plants, with their pretty serrated leaves, dainty white flowers and ruby-red berries – a natural choice for hanging baskets and containers. No spraying necessary because Tristar is disease-resistant. This variety is a day-neutral strawberry, meaning a heavy crop in early spring, lighter picking in the heat of summer, and back to big berries in the fall. Cold-hardy. Self-pollinating.

    Our Tristar Strawberries came bare root. We planted them right away. They all started to grow, then more than half of them just died. Some of the ones that lived still don’t look well. Only a few of them ready grew.

    Plants in ground for 1 month flowering and berries are set, not sure what care they need for winter I have requests in for information

    25 plants were ordered 6-1-21, arrived 6-10-21 ahead of promised date. They were not packaged in the moist shredded paper in a plastic bag as the Earliglo plants I received May 27. These were tightly rubberbanded and looked completely dried out with no green, no rosy crowns, just moldy, dusty looking dead plants. The earliglo plants had arrived with green leaf to them. Well, I ran water over them and wrapped the plants in paper towels overnight and the next morning, separated them, some were in the bundle upside down. I put potting soil in around them and made sure it was moist and kept them that way for another day, as I wasn’t going to waste my time if they showed no sign of waking up. I really thought I’d be calling Stark to complain, however, they started to get color in the crowns, the roots started getting filled out and white, so I planted them in 3 strawberry pots. Over the next few days they all leafed out except for 2 holdouts. I kept those 2 and their buddies inside when the temps were over 90 for a few days. They are all green, but the last one to put on a leaf doesn’t look like a strawberry leaf, but it lacked a crown also. The roots look the same, so we will see what it is. This is 12 days since arrival all 25 plants have at least one leaf and one has bloomed. Stark, please pack your babies better, so I don’t have to put them in ICU when they arrive. The 5 stars is for 100% of the plants surviving that kind of mistreatment.

    I bought three bundles of Tri Star strawberries in February. The plants are vigorous, sending out runners and have many green berries that have begun to ripen. All of that would be great except these are not Tri Star berries. I have grown Tri Star berries since they first became available for the home grower. The berries are small, tender, and have a wonderful flavor. The berries I have are gigantic, tough, and the first ripe berries are wanting in flavor, more like grocery store strawberries. I’m sure they would ship well. I will be searching for true TriStar berries to plant next spring. I know they are hard to get because they don’t sell well in the commercial strawberry trade. It is a shame that almost all fruit cultivars available today are of the cardboard variety that is designed to look great and ship well with taste an afterthought. Tasty fruit is a thing of the past unless you know of an orchard or grower that has old varieties. There is nothing quite like a tree ripened Santa Rosa plum, a Royal apricot, or Tri Star strawberries. I will not be buying plants here again.

    The product arrived as described. I ordered 25 bare root Tristar strawberry plants and received 30. My order arrived the week after I ordered. They arrived in a small parcel wrapped in plastic and damp newspaper shreddings. I am happy to report that all 30 survived shipping and planting into temporary quart-sized containers. I have them all inside a grow tent until the, soon to pass, last frost date. All 30 plants have begun growing and have 2 trifoliate bracts emerged from the crowns. I am very pleased with the viability of this Stark Bro’s product. I was also happy to find the strawberry growing guide on the Stark Bro’s website (https://www.starkbros.com/growing-guide/how-to-grow/berry-plants/strawberry-plants). Once the Tristar strawberries are planted outside in a raised bed I will publish a 2nd end of season review in September specifically targeted towards the Tristar cultivar itself.

    These are not sweet strawberries. They grow well but can only enjoy them in jams or pie.

    I planted all 25 in a raised bed in Colorado (Front range). All survived, and grew huge. For a week or 2 we got a handful of berries every day. Currently, we haven’t had any ripe berries for a few days, but there are still some green ones and flowers left, so we should still get a few more. Very happy with this purchase.

    I grown strawberries the last couple years. Tried this website since a lot are sold out. Only had 19 decent looking roots and planted them the same way I always do and they stayed brown.

  9. Carolyn C

    Love these everbearing strawberries. Delicious low-maintenance berries that are great for snacking all season long. Zone 6b. No pest or disease problems. The berries are small, so don’t expect huge, freezer-worthy yields from this one (check out earliglow for that), but a delightful berry for someone who wants berries available through out spring, summer, and fall.

    Not one of them ever grew. Dead,dead,dead,dead.Doa
