Strawberry - Quinault
Strawberry Quinault, Fragaria × ananassa 'Quinault', is a newer everbearing variety that produces berries on unrooted runners. It is a great tasting strawberry developed by Washington State University. Good for potted everbearing strawberries. It is well on its way to being the greatest performer ever. Quinault Strawberries have an excellent performance record for size, taste and plant growth.
Quinault was found to be the most disease free everbearer ever tested. Everbearing Strawberries produce an early summer crop and also a fall crop with some berries on and off all summer. Pinch off blooms for first two months on everbearing strawberries to promote larger harvest. These strawberries prefer a soil pH of 5.3 to 6.5. When they reach maturity they will attain a height of 8 to 12 inches and spread will be about 12 inches.
In addition to being low in fat and calories, strawberries are naturally high in fiber, vitamin C, folate, potassium and antioxidants, making them a sweet choice that advances heart health, reduces the risk of certain types of cancer, and gives a boost to total body (and mind) wellness.
NOTE: When making a strawberry bed in an established garden, be sure to locate it away from any spot where you have grown peppers, tomatoes, eggplant or potatoes. These plants can harbor verticillium wilt, which is devastating to strawberries.
