Junebearing strawberry is another common name for this cultivar. It MUST be grown in full sun. Strawberry plants require a lot of maintenance. I grew up on a strawberry farm. The runners need to be placed where they can grow to full size plants without hindering the growth or harvesting of the current "mother" plant. Strawberry plants only produce for about 3 years, then the quality of the fruit becomes less flavorful and is much smaller. The runners that start new plants then become the mother plants. It's neat, but very time consuming.

'Honeoye' strawberries are not a disease-resistant variety, but are great performers. The large fruit is red all the way through, and quite sweet. They produce many runners over a season which can be moved to add to your bed. This strawberry would be excellent for dipping in chocolate or to use as an impressive garnish, as well.
