Strawberry ‘All Star’ Junebearing

Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit!
‘Allstar’ is the LARGEST STRAWBERRY that has that sweet, good-ol’ strawberry flavor! With an almost perfect strawberry shape, Allstar has become a major variety during the late mid-season time. ‘Allstar’ strawberry is a must for your garden. The glossy firm fruit, which holds its size very well, is an excellent u-pick or home garden choice. It only takes about 10 berries to fill a quart basket. The plants are vigorous, hardy and easy to grow. The foliage is dense and lasts well into the winter making an excellent groundcover. Its orange/red color and delicate skin lessens its shipping potential.

To enjoy fresh, juicy strawberries from your own garden, begin by setting plants out as early as possible in the spring. Allow the runners to form a mat 15 to 18″ wide with the runner plants spaced 4 to 6″ apart. For winter production, cover plants with straw or leaves after the temperature has fallen to about 20° F. Remove covering in the spring once growth begins. Pinch Junebearing plants until flowering ceases in early summer and expect a bountiful harvest the following spring. After the second bearing season it is advisable to replant the bed.
