Gardeners' Notes:

Positive coriaceous On Mar 13, 2015, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

For over 30 years, 'Tristar' and its sibling 'Tribute' have been the standard day-neutral ("everbearing") cultivars for the northeast. Disease resistant and vigorous, they runner enough for matted row production.

Relatively small fruited and low-yielding, but for home production that matters little. Of the two, 'Tristar' has better flavor and 'Tribute' has larger fruit.

These are the absolute best strawberries I have ever tasted! They are big and prolific, all summer long.

This is a great strawberry! They are the first to ripen in June and have a tangy strawberry flavor, very sweet and pleasant. No need to add sugar to these.
The berries are small to medium in size and keep coming ALL Summer (except for a 2 week break in early July) until frost. I've picked them for Halloween.
The plants are a bit smaller than most. They often bear fruit on the runners even before they are rooted.
