Europes Amazing Whopper Strawberries


Sweet and Delicious Berries as Big as Peaches
  • Hardy
  • Multiply Rapidly
  • Produce Prolific Crops

These hardy, prolific plants produce dozens of sweet, delicious berries as big as peaches.
When the first plants of this variety were introduced to European gardeners several years ago, most everyone was skeptical. Giant-sized fruits of many kinds had been offered before. While they often grew like weeds, most often the fruits they produced had about as much taste as a piece of cardboard. And, even if there was some value to the fruit, all too often the plants put on a single show and then died away quickly, never to return.
But the venturesome European gardeners who decided to try Whopper Strawberries quickly lost all skepticism. Not only did the plants grow with special vigor, but the giant berries they produced - four times the size of normal strawberries - were exceptionally sweet, juicy and delicious.
Even after some of the especially harsh winters Europe experienced, the original plants kept multiplying and proved to be extremely hardy, producing an ever-increasing crop of delicious fruit year after year.
Gurney's experts followed the development of these amazing plants. As soon as reports of great success in home gardens throughout Europe began coming in, we arranged to obtain a quantity of select growing stock. Now, this growing stock has produced a sufficient quantity of plants, so we can offer these amazing Whopper Strawberries to selected American gardeners.
