GMO-Free, Packaged Fruit – Item ST518
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. Berries not eaten fresh can be easily 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). To enjoy fresh, juicy strawberries from your own garden, begin by setting plants out as early as possible in the spring. Spade the soil deeply and set the plants in double or triple rows.
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. Grow in average, medium wet, well-drained soil in full sun. Prefers organically rich, sandy loams. Strawberries are a high maintenance fruit crop which can be grown all over the United States.
