I didn't try strawberries until I noticed Gurney's selling a heat tolerant strawberry. I bought 25 bare root last spring, planted in pots, ate strawberries all summer and fall (but only if I fertilized my pots with bone meal every week), and they started producing again in February this year. They're not the sweetest, but they still taste great straight off the vine. This year I'm moving them all into direct sun. http://gurneys.com/product.asp_Q_pn_E_11061

Thank you, great to read somebody grow in hot srawberries.
Since I moved to Barbados from Serbia I can only dream Strawberries :((
could you email me on: email@example.com
How could I grow Strawberries here in hot island?
Thank you in advance
You have got me VERY excited! VERY excited. Did I mention I am excited? I am prepared to watch the Fort Laramies dwindle away when the triple digits come but these will make a fine replacement. I have a lot of bone meal so I will be using that too. I thank you so kindly for making me aware of this heat tolerant variety. Thank you!
Click on the link provided by Sue. I think this may be the answer for you too.
Homegrown strawberries are the best! I grow mine under my roses, that way they get a bit of shade and get watered as often as the roses. I pick and eat mine early in the morning--don't bring them inside to share! Good luck with growing more, yeah I know we don't get nearly as hot as your area--but I am in a desert too so take heart. ; )
