This plant is great! A must have for strawberry lovers. The fruit is large, plentiful, and has a refreshing, very juicy, sour, and sweet taste. However the must intresting thing I observed is that the fruit literally goes from white to almost completly red overnight!

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.

Crowns must be placed right at the top of the soil line or they will not survive (rotting if placed too deep and drying out if placed too high). Blooms exposed to late freezes (without protection) result in a limited harvest.
