A terrific all-around strawberry, this June-bearer begins about 2 weeks after Earliglow and keeps the berries coming over a long season. Its large, firm, deliciously sweet fruit is excellent for fresh eating or canning and preserving, holding up well after picking.

The first thing you will notice about these berries is that they are particularly resistant to bruises and abrasions. They can take a bit of rough handling and still look attractive and healthy! Perfect for home gardeners, Jewel earns its name by sight as well as by taste!

Developed by Cornell University, Jewel was bred specifically for large fruit size, attractive appearance, and high quality eating. Who can ask for anything more from a strawberry, really?! It excels at all three, but its best feature is flavor! You will find it very productive and always delicious. Zones 4-8.

Delightful

We purchased 25 jewel strawberry plants in April of 2018. When they arrived we only had 2 that didn't make it and the rest took right off and grew healthy and strong in the raised bed we made for them. Spring 2019 we had a great first harvest, even though the weather in Michigan was less than cooperative. I'd say we picked at least 14 quarts and had a fresh quart about every other day to eat. They are delicious and easy for all ages to handle. I'm hoping for a bigger 2nd year crop!

They arrived and I didn't have the bed ready for a full week, since I was building a pyramid planter from scratch. I added a touch of moisture the day after they arrived and left them in the box on the cool, but not freezing porch for a week. Guiltily, they were dry, but not whithered when I planted them. All survived.
