Strawberry 'Honeoye' Junebearing
Item ST171

Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit!
Try Honeoye if you want the tastiest strawberries ever! This large, sweet as Honey Junebearing variety gives Honeoye its name. It is the best for freezing! Honeoye also has a beautiful red color and it is a fantastic yielder! The world famous plant breeders at Geneva, New York Experiment Station knew they had a winning strawberry when they saw the large crimson red fruits. The flavor is excellent, sweet and highly aromatic. These plants are highly resistant to disease. With a long 2-week harvest period the Honeoye offers an ample amount of fruit.

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.

Size: #1 Hardiness: Zones 2-9 Height: 1' Spacing: 22-24"

Classification: Junebearing Botanical: Fragaria x ananassa 'Honeoye'

Harvest: Early June Exposure: Full Sun

Fruit: Bright Red and Firm Foliage: Green

Pests: 'Honeoye' is reportedly susceptible to red stele and verticillium wilt, but has good general disease resistance. Strawberries are susceptible to a large number of potential problems, including but not limited to: foliage diseases (leaf spot), root rots (red stele, black root rot), fruit rots (anthracnose, leather rot), verticillium wilt, gray mold, viruses and scorch. Tarnished plant bug, mites, aphids, leafrollers, slugs, nematodes and strawberry weevils are occasional insect pests.

Notes: Strawberries are a welcome addition to any home garden. They are relatively easy to grow, require a minimum of space, and virtually no chemicals are needed. Honeoye is firm, red clear through and is great for pies. A good fresh shipper and very winter hardy. Produces runners very freely, so it's a perfect ground cover. Long season of heavy crops in early June. Currently, the most popular PYO variety in the Midwest and Northeast. It's the leading producer in holding its size during the long harvest season.The Honeoye is best flavored when allowed to grow in lighter soils. Due to flavor considerations and lack of disease resistance, it is best to keep this variety on lighter soils or in raised beds. Berries not eaten fresh can be readily frozen or preserved. Besides being an excellent dessert fruit, strawberries are a good source of vitamin C as well as being low in calories (1/2 cup fills an adult's daily need for vitamin C and equals about 25 calories).

Junebearers are sensitive to the length of day and send out runners in spring as day length increases. Five-petaled white flowers with yellow centers appear on the plants in early spring and give way to large red berries which mature in late spring to early summer. Junebearing berries are normally larger than the berries produced by everbearing or day-neutral plants.

Planting instructions: Soak plants in water a few minutes before planting. May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is level with the soil surface and water thoroughly. Apply fertilizer after growth begins.

Best grown in organically rich, medium wet, well-drained soils in full sun. Strawberries are a high maintenance food crop which can be grown throughout the United States.
