‘All Star’ has the good, old-fashioned strawberry flavour you remember from your youth. The berries are large and firm and the fruit comes in June.
As opposed to Everbearing strawberry varieties, you'll get more berries per season from June bearing strawberries, and the entire crop will ripen over a three week period. This plant produces large, firm berries with a high sugar content. One of the most important aspects of a healthy strawberry patch is location -- a minimum of six hours of sunlight a day.
Although you can get a harvestable crop with as little as six hours of direct sunlight per day, the largest harvests and best quality berries come from those plants that get the advantage of full sun. They are perennial, winter hardy, and will thrive in full sunshine, as long as the soil is fertile and well drained. Healthy plants will produce an abundance of berries for three to four years, after which they should be replaced.
