  • Yield: Approximately 1 - 2 pints.
  • Color: White
  • Foliage: Rich, thick green foliage.
  • Blooms: May - August
  • Fruit: Large, firm, wedge-shaped, long-necked berries up to 4 inches; bright red fruit inside and out.
  • Form: Mounding/Spreading
  • Flower Form: White blossoms
  • Soil Requirements: Moist, well-drained, slightly acidic, sandy loam soil.
  • Growth Rate: Moderate growth rate.
  • Seed Count: Popular everbearer, yields dozens of berries throughout the summer months. The initial harvest is large, then steady the rest of the season. Bears fruit consistently the first year. Produces large, firm, wedge-shaped fruit, that is bright red inside and out, up to 4". Good for fresh eating, pies, preserves, canning and freezing.
  • Pruning: Root only 5 or 6 runners from each plant and remove the rest. Arrange the runners to the ground and plant and remove the rest. Arrange the runners so they're about 6 inches apart. Everbearers should not bear fruit with the first flush of flowers since they need their strength to establish the main plant and to sprout runners. Pinch or cut off the first flowers that form, allowing the flowers later in the season to produce fruit.
  • Size: 1/2 + inch flowers.
  • Comments: Our favorite, popular everbearer is famous for it's large yields of bright red, unusually large berries. Ozark Beauty plants set delicious fruit from June through September. Everbearing strawberries deliver fruit all Summer, with a large initial harvest and a steady crop the rest of the season. Like Junebearers, they are very easy to grow and will do well most anywhere. Plant both Junebearers and Everbearers for a constant supply of fresh fruit. High sugar content. Thrives in any soil. Unusually vigorous plants with a deep root system. Resistant to leaf spot and leaf scorch. Especially good for the North and in Southern mountain states.
