Your favorite June bearing Strawberries?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
I am wanting to order June bearing strawberries this year and would like to know your favorite variety and where you order them? In the past I have gotten them just from the Garden shop at Lowes etc. but would like to get a variety that is recommended by others. We are in zone 5 if that matters. Thank you!

Hello I live in Northern Ontario so I don't know if the standard Strawberry varieties here are common wherever you are. One of the favorites here is Kent, but I personally prefer VeeStar. It's a tiny bit later than Kent, but I find it sweeter and juicier. I purchased my plants from Simple Pleasures. USA toll free 1-888-886-4921.

The variety I like is 'Fletcher'. It's been awhile since I ordered any, but most strawberry nurseries probably have it. It's an older variety known for exceptional taste--not a shipping berry.

My favorites are "Sparkles". I've gotten a few Strawberries that were close to being half the size of my fist. No kidding! Harmony

Jewell. Excellent berry for home use and for selling commercially. I have been dealing with Daisy Farms for many years and recommend them wholeheartedly.
