The USDA developed this improved, more compact version of the popular variety 'Guardian.' A spring-bearer, 'Allstar' has excellent resistance to fungus diseases, greatly improving its yield and reducing your labor in the garden. The large, juicy-sweet berries are great for eating fresh or for freezing.

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. June-bearing varieties produce fruit in late spring to early summer -- typically in June! Replace the crop about every 3 years to keep yields high. This is the type of strawberry to choose for big harvests over a short period -- ideal for canning or freezing.
