Strawberry ‘Ozark Beauty’ Everbearing

Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit!
‘Ozark Beauty’ is a long time favorite and is excellent for preserves or freezing. Large red berries with mouth-watering flavor. The absolute hardiest, most vigorous and one of the heaviest producing everbearing plants. You’ll be feasting on big crops of these exceptionally delicious scarlet-red berries from early summer until the first frost. All winter you’ll savor preserves and frozen desserts. This is an everbearing strawberry that produces berries that are semi-firm, red clear through, and full of flavor. High-yielding plants and self-pollinating.

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. Strawberries also do well planted in containers. Runners should be removed as well as the first flush of flowers so plants can direct energy into establishing a strong root system. For winter protection, cover plants with straw or leaves after the temperature has fallen to about 20° F. Remove covering in the spring once growth begins. The bed should be replaced after two years as quality and yield begin to decrease.

General Information +

Botanical: Fragaria x ananassa 'Ozark Beauty'

Cultivator Type: Everbearing

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. 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). 'Ozark Beauty' is an everbearing strawberry which produces one crop early in the season (typically June) and a smaller crop in the fall with very little crop during the long summer. Unlike junebearers, everbearers are not sensitive to the length of day and do not require renovation in summer. Five-petaled, white flowers with yellow centers appear on the plants in spring. Flowers give way to medium sized, red berries. Everbearing strawberries are normally smaller than the berries produced by junebearing plants.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Pests or Diseases: Ozark Beauty' generally has good disease resistance.

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.
