Plant details

There are many summer varieties of large-fruited strawberry, divided into early (and second early or early mid-season) varieties such as 'Honeoye', mid-season types, and late kinds. There are also perpetual varieties which crop irregularly all summer and autumn. All crop well for about three to four years, after which yields decline and plants then need to be propagated. Rich well-manured soil is essential, together with ample water during flowering and fruiting. Plants may be cloched for earlier harvest, and should be netted against birds and squirrels. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
