Botanical Name: Fragaria Species Description: Popular, versatile start that works well all over the United States. Honeoye produces fruit in early - mid season. Very large, sweet fruit, and excellent winter tolerance. Honeoye is great for both the backyard and U-Pick operations. Resistant to leaf spot and leaf scorch. Easy to grow. Hold flavor and color in freezing and canning. Winter hardy and high productivity. Plant both Everbearers and Junebearers to enjoy fresh strawberries all summer long. To avoid flowering and fruiting stress on young plants, flower buds should be removed in the first year. Removal of flowers will allow the plants to direct their energy toward establishing a root system and developing a healthy, large leaf canopy to fuel next year’s crop.
Junebearers produce a single crop each year during a 2-3 week period.
