May 12, 2013. What could be more satisfying than berries from your own backyard? Strawberry plants can be either June-bearing, which means they produce one large crop each season, usually in June, or ever-bearing which produce fruit all season long. June-bearing strawberries are the first fruit to ripen and are usually larger in size than ever-bearers. They are larger plants and are best suited for life in the ground. Ever-bearing strawberries, however, are generally smaller in size but flower and set fruit all growing season. Their smaller size makes them ideal for growing in containers and as specimen or border plants in your flower garden. We have an abundance of strawberry plants “ripe” for the picking, so stop in today!
