General Information +

Botanical: Fragaria x ananassa 'Honeoye'

Cultivator Type: Junebearing

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. 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.

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.
