A reliable fruiter, even from #1 roots, bearing fruit continually from late spring though summer & fall. Mutiplies at a good rate. Will cover with a garden fabric this year... 2006. Quinalt everbearing strawberry is an excellent growing variety producing large, sweet strawberries. Very disease resistant. The green leaves are still green, even without protection, in containers; over this past winter season with temperatures down to minus 25 degrees.
