Strawberry - All Star
Large, Very Sweet Fruit
The All Star Strawberry has excellent flavor and it is resistant to disease. The entire crop ripens in June, mid to late season. This plant produces large, firm berries with high sugar content over interesting 3-lobed, toothed leaves on extremely vigorous plants.
They are perennial, winter hardy, and will thrive in full sunshine, as long as the soil is fertile and well drained. Healthy plants will produce an abundance of berries for three to four years, after which they should be replaced.
Your strawberry bed should have good drainage and be well tilled with rich organic matter such as manure or compost to give your strawberry plants a good start, with amendments again in the spring. Keep your plants well watered until they are established (but don't overdo) and up to fruiting time. Strawberries can also be planted in tubs, containers and hanging baskets.
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.
