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.

General Information +

General Characteristics: 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. Allstar is a midseason, junebearing strawberry cultivar which, as the name suggests, produces one crop of fruit per year early in the season (typically June). 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/Care Instructions +

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.

Pests or Diseases: Allstar' reportedly has good disease resistance. Allstar's vigor and resistance to red stele, verticillium wilt, moderate resistance to powdery mildew and leaf scorch, makes it suitable to almost any growing region and soil condition.
