Much sweeter than strawberries you purchase at the grocery store, homegrown strawberries are a flavorful treat that offer up produce throughout the season. The key is to plant multiple varieties. June-bearing plants produce one large crop of berries in June. Everbearing types produce two crops per season: summer and fall. New varieties of the everbearing type truly produce berries in spring, summer, and fall. Finally, day-neutral plants produce berries any time temperatures are between 35 degrees F and 85 degrees F. Instead of a large crop in June or July, you pick fruit from summer to fall.
how to grow Strawberry
Begin harvesting most types of berries the year after planting -- about 14 months from planting in northern zones and 9 months in the south. Highest yield will come from the youngest plants.
