~120 Days— The level of audacity it takes for the cost of strawberries to skyrocket simultaneously while claiming the number one spot on the Dirty Dozen Food List is surreal to me.
Y’all, it’s time to grow your own. Plant and Heal Co. can help with our easy to grow strawberry bareroot plants.
Classic EVERBEARING strawberry (zone 5-8) Fruits first season.
The Albion Strawberry is becoming a highly requested berry with market growers and u-pick farms due to the large size and the insanely sweet taste of these bold red symmetrical berries.
The berries are ideal for everything from fresh eating and preserves to frozen and pie making. Albion strawberry exhibits resistance to verticillium wilt and phytophthora crown rot. Give these plants a little extra space for largest berries. Albions show good disease resistance due to the deliciously sweet firm flesh.
This hybrid from the West Coast yields tons of large and sweet berries. The highlight is that the Albion Strawberry can withstands both intensely hot summers and cold winters while still fruiting from spring to autumn.
Produces 1-3 pints per plant. Bears fruits from late April until nearly frost is most areas.
Note: Everbearing strawberry plants usually do not produce as many ‘daughters’ (runners) as Junebearing plants. Self-pollinating. Zones 4-8. U.S. Patent No. 16228.
Encourage the plant to put its energy into becoming established by removing all the flower buds for the first 6 weeks after setting out your plants. It is also recommend that you remove all the runners during the first year—I don’t do it but you can!
