FRAGARIA x ananassa 'Eversweet'
Garden Strawberry, Strawberry
Garden strawberries are low-growing hybrid perennials prized for their sweet, aromatic red fruit. The "everbearing" strawberry 'Eversweet' produces large flavorful fruits throughout the growing season.
Like most garden strawberries, 'Eversweet' spreads by runners to form expanding mats of three-lobed leaves. Plants produce round white five-petaled flowers in spring, with successive flushes of bloom appearing until frost. Crops of large, cone-shaped, bright-red berries ripen at approximately 6-week intervals, although production may diminish in hot weather. The firm sweet fruits are excellent for fresh eating.
Garden strawberries thrive in full sun and moderately fertile, moist, acidic to neutral soil. They are good choices for culinary gardens, containers, or "strawberry towers." They are vulnerable to numerous pests and diseases, which should be monitored and controlled if necessary.
