Plant details

A perpetual cropping strawberry, this variety bears fruit in June and again in late summer. In order to increase the amount of fruit during its later crop, remove all of the flowers early on in the season. The red berries are firm and benefits from frequent picking as the fruits tend to darken once they are ripe. Be generous with water and feed throughout its growing season.
