Strawberry ‘Quinault’ Everbearing

Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit!
‘Quinault’ is a newer everbearing variety that produces berries on unrooted runners. It is a great tasting strawberry developed by Washington State University. Good for potted everbearing strawberries. Makes excellent ground cover or border planting along walks or paths. The fruit is so tasty. Berries up to 2″ in diameter from June till frost. 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 'Quinault'

Cultivator Type: Everbearing

General Characteristics: Everbearing Strawberries produce an early summer crop and also a fall crop with some berries on and off all summer. Tip: Pinch off blooms for first two months on everbearing strawberries to promote larger harvest. 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).

Pests or Diseases: Quinault' Strawberries have been tested in 13 states and Canada and have an excellent performance record for size, taste and plant growth. It was found to be the most disease free everbearer we have ever tested.

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.
