Our local farm/hardware store had their annual spring plant sale this past weekend. I found what is hyped as being a heat tolerant, everbearing, day neutral strawberry berry, sold under the variety name of Eversweet.
I think that at $0.85 each for 4 inch pot, plants. The price is not unreasonable.
Height: 8 – 10 inches.
Spacing: 12 – 24 inches.
Spread: 8 – 12 inches.
Sun/Shade: Full sun.
Yield: Approximately 1 – 2 pints.
Blooms: May – August.
Fruit: Very large, deep red berries.
* Everbearing. Thrives in the heat and humidity and still produces exceptional fruit. Bred for Southern growers. Tolerates temperatures over 100 degrees F. without loss of fruit quality.
Michelle L. has a plot on the north side of her house that I think will be a perfect Strawberry bed.
Sunday, Son-n-law and grandson tilled the bed and transplanted 20 plants.
By this time next year I can report if all the hype about Everysweet strawberry being heat tolerant is fact or just hype.
