Gardeners' Notes:

After eating my first couple of ripened berries of this plant, I got to say that I completely disagree with the statement that these are bland. I found them to be quite tasty and very sweet. Looking forward to the rest of this years crop.

Neutral rntx22 On May 13, 2008, rntx22 from Houston, TX (Zone 9a) wrote:

The squirrels got all of my berries except one... I tried it today, it was decent, not the best tasting berry, but not horrible. I probably could have let it ripen longer but I was afraid the squirrels would get to it first.

Negative Terry On Oct 10, 2003, Terry from Murfreesboro, TN (Zone 7a) wrote:

I planted 'Allstar' two seasons ago, and I'm in the process of selecting a replacement variety.

Let's start with the pluses: 'Allstar' is a vigorous grower; sends out many new runners each year. Also fairly high producing.

On the downside, the plants were highly susceptible to gray mold and - in my opinion, the cardinal sin - totally lacking in taste. Just one of those big, beautiful (when mold isn't a problem) berries that are watery and bland. (I can buy tasteless varieties at the grocer's all year-round, and save my garden space for something else...)
