Fresh berries from late spring through summer!

Performs reliably in pots or the garden!
These are the biggest, softest, juiciest, most delectable strawberries you can find for fresh eating! 'Quinalt' is "the" name for giant, delicious berries, and if you've got even one strawberry lover in the family, you owe it to them to grow this easy, high-yielding plant!

These berries are a full 2 inches wide, with soft flesh and dessert-quality flavor. They've got everything I appreciate in homegrown strawberries -- an intense fragrance, great color, and that succulent tenderness that no store-bought berry really equals!

'Quinalt' is an everbearing or "day-neutral" plant, so it will keep producing from late spring through summer -- 4 to 5 months of solid crops isn't unusual! And it's self-pollinating, which means you don't have to grow a big field of these plants to get good yields. In fact, 'Quinalt' is a great choice for pots (as well as the garden, of course!), because it sets berries even in unrooted runners!

Reaching anywhere from 12 to 18 inches wide and spreading up to 2 feet wide in the garden, 'Quinalt' is terrifically vigorous, thanks to its great resistance to many common strawberry diseases: leaf scorch, leaf spot, and root rot. It's the perfect combination -- huge fruit size, unbeatable flavor, and heavy yields!

Among the best fruit crops for the home gardener, strawberries ask only fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. They offer years of tasty fruit, renewing themselves from the runners they produce. Set plants 2 1/2 feet apart. They will set 3/4-inch white blooms a few weeks later, followed by fruit about 4 to 5 weeks later. Replace this crop about every 2 years to keep up the yields. Ever-bearing varieties flower and bear fruit over about a 5-month time frame, although the spring and fall months tend to be heavier, particularly in warm climates. They do best in the Northern U.S., and are a great choice for the higher elevations in the South. Zones 4-8.

The dry, sparse appearance of bareroot perennials can be alarming to the novice gardener, but in reality ordering bare root is often the smarter choice. Foliage and blooms can be seductive, but the health and long-term potential of a plant truly lies in its roots. Bareroot plants have several advantages over plants in containers—bare roots are less likely to be harmed in the shipping process, their timing is easier to control, and they are field-grown for larger, healthier root systems. This why Wayside Gardens has had great success with bare root plants, and you can too!

It is safer to ship plants in bareroot form because there is no risk in harming new growth, and therefore the plant actually has a better chance of making it safely into the customer’s garden.

And thanks to refrigerated storage, the timing of bareroot perennials can be precisely controlled. “(Bareroot perennials) are dormant,” explains JPPA Lead Horticulturist Benjamin Chester, “But as soon as they leave the refrigerated storage they’ll begin breaking dormancy.” And once the plant ‘wakes up’, it is ready to begin the growing season in earnest, which means it will quickly catch up to the level of container plants.

The most important benefit of bareroot perennials is that they can be field grown rather than confined to containers. The bareroot Cherry Cheesecake Hibiscus pictured hereperfectly illustrates the difference between a field-grown perennial and a containerized one. Wayside Gardens used to offer this variety in a quart container, like the Monarda next to it. But the Hibiscus was simply too cramped in that space, so Wayside switched to growing it in the earth and selling it bare root. The result is a thick, fibrous mass of roots that used to fill up several cubic feet of soil and which, even in its bare, pruned form would be too large to fit back into the 1 Quart container. What a difference a little space makes! While small and slow-growing cultivars can start well in containers, large and vigorous cultivars need more room to stretch out and develop a solid root system.

Great Strawberries!!!

This is an amazing plant! The first year I grew it in pots and rooted the runners in another small pot. This year I transplanted them to the garden and they are doing great! They're producing more fruit and runners in the garden than the pots - they must be happy and so am I!!!
FAST GROWING
