Handfuls of ripe strawberries

The best strawberries to grow

Check out our pick of the most flavoursome, biggest-cropping strawberries to grow.

Strawberries are a highlight of summer and you don’t need masses of space to enjoy a delicious, home-grown harvest – even a strawberry planter placed on a balcony will do.

There are so many varieties to grow, but most of them are split into several categories depending on when they ripen. Earlies ripen from late May, mid-season strawberries from mid-June and the late varieties from late June. Everbearing or perpetual strawberries produce flushes of strawberries from late summer until the first frosts, extending the season.
