Fragaria 'Quinault' Strawberry

Pack of 20
Item #48748-PK-20


Fresh berries from late spring through summer

These are the biggest, softest, juiciest, most delectable strawberries you can find for fresh eating. 'Quinault' 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 Fragaria 'Quinault' Strawberries 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.

Fragaria 'Quinault' Strawberry 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, 'Quinault' 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, Fragaria 'Quinault' Strawberry 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 2½ feet apart. They will set ¾-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. Everbearing 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.

Your order will include 20 young bare root plant starts.
