Strawberry Surecrop, Fragaria × ananassa 'Surecrop', is a heavy producer of large, firm, rich but sweet fruit in mid-season. 'Surecrop' is an easy-to-grow crop and it makes great jams, jellies, pies, tarts, and an ideal canner. The berries redden all the way through, with a rich but sweet flavor. The fruit holds well both on the vines and after picking.

June bearing strawberries produce a single crop each year during a 2-3 week period. If you get blooms the first year while the plant is getting established, pinch the blooms off to ensure a large fruit crop the next year. The average yield of one quart per plant and it is self-pollinating. Light to even sandy soil with good drainage is required. Neutral to slightly acidic is best. Strawberry plants need consistent, frequent watering to produce well.

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.
