Strawberries are the perfect fruit for the home garden. They are easy to care for, need little space and yield large amounts of fruit. Strawberries are not only delicious fresh from the garden, but they also store well in the freezer. Growing about 25 strawberry plants in a home garden provides a family with plenty of vitamin C-rich, low-calorie strawberries for the entire year.
Strawberries are available in assorted varieties that produce medium, large and very large fruit. Choose a variety that suits your purpose, whether you want strawberries that are best for preserving, sweet enough for desserts, mature quickly or are resistant to insects and diseases.
Dessert-quality strawberries include Earliglow, Kent, Lester, Redchief, Surecrop, Guardian, Midway and Lateglow. The best strawberries for freezing include Earliglow, Redchief, Surecrop, Midway, Delite, Tristar and Tribute. Plants that yield the largest strawberries are Guardian, Lester, Redchief, Surecrop, Delite and Lateglow.
Begin planting strawberries as soon as the soil can be worked, usually in March or April, depending on the region. Planting in the early spring allows the strawberry plants to set their roots before the weather turns too hot. Before planting, fertilize the soil and turn in the fertilizer to about 8 inches deep. Place the strawberry plants in dry, well-drained soil on an overcast day in early evening.
Cover the tops of the strawberry roots with loam, making sure not to cover the crown where the green stems grow. New runners form about five weeks after planting. These runners become new strawberry plants.
Once the strawberry plants are established, they need direct sunlight for about six hours every day. Strawberries require a minimum of 1 inch of water each week.
Matted Row Planting System
The Matted Row system is best for strawberries that mature in June. When using the Matted Row system, plant the strawberries from 18 to 30 inches apart. Set the rows about four feet apart. This system allows the runners and new plants to form a matted row.
For the Spaced Row system, set the strawberry plants 18 to 30 inches apart, using rows that are approximately 4 feet apart. The new plants, or daughter plants, are set up to 4 inches apart. Any extra runners are cut from the original strawberry plant. The Spaced Row system produces more fruit and larger strawberries than the other systems but takes more care.
The Hill System is the most popular planting system for strawberries. Remove all the runners growing from the original plant. Removing the runners causes the mother plant to produce more flowering stalks that become strawberries. Plant the rows of strawberries in groups from two to four plants. Allow a 2-foot-wide row between groups. During the first few weeks, weed the garden bed, and then use mulch to control more weeds.
Mulch the strawberry plants in the fall to prevent the frost from killing the roots and new spring buds. Apply a mulch of straw about 4 inches deep over the plants. In the spring, remove the mulch when the strawberry leaves begin to turn yellow. Keep the soil moist by leaving some of the mulch around the base of the strawberry plant. Strawberry plants produce fruit for up to four years.
Introduction to the Strawberry Varieties Page
If you have decided to plant strawberries and need help sorting through the myriad of strawberry varieties to pick the right one for you, you’ve come to the right spot! Ever since the Garden Strawberry began to dominate the commercial strawberry industry (see the history section on the Strawberry Plant page for more details), a concerted effort to breed a better strawberry has occurred. Organizations in North America, Europe, and Australia have led the charge. As a result, new and improved strawberry varieties are developed and released almost yearly.
So, which strawberry variety is right for you, your needs, your location? Of course, it depends on several factors. This page is designed to help you consider all your options and pick one or more strawberry varieties that will perform well for you. If you have already settled on a variety, compare prices for your chosen cultivar at the Buy Strawberry Plants page. You can also find a directory of plant suppliers at our Strawberry Plants for Sale page. Or, you can find strawberry seed suppliers at our Strawberry Seeds page. Whichever strawberry varieties you select, be sure to reference the Growing Strawberries page for help maximizing your strawberry yield!
How the Strawberry Varieties Page Works
This main Strawberry Varieties page serves as a hub for everything related to individual strawberry varieties. The heart of this page is the List of Strawberry Varieties / Cultivars below. You can sort it according to each of the categories to better find exactly which strawberry variety will work best for you and your strawberry growing desires. Prior to the List of Strawberry Varieties / Cultivars table, a brief explanation of the three strawberry types will provide some background information as you select which strawberry type and variety is right for you. If you have no idea which strawberry variety (or varieties) is appropriate for your location, the list of recommended strawberry cultivars for each state will help guide you.
New strawberry varieties are constantly being bred and released. So, the links at the bottom of this page will be updated regularly with new information and links. And, feel free to use the comments or the form on the About page to contact us with questions or remarks.
List of Strawberry Types
Prior to browsing our table of strawberry varieties, it is important to review the three types of strawberries. Strawberry plants can be either June-bearing (June bearing), everbearing (ever-bearing), or day-neutral (day neutral).
June-bearing strawberry varieties:
Any list of strawberry varieties will probably contain more June-bearing strawberry varieties than any other. June bearers are tremendously popular and common. They typically produce the largest strawberries, and do so over a period of two to three weeks, on average. Most June bearing strawberry varieties produce a harvest around the month of June, hence the name. However, strawberry varieties are further classified into Early Season, Midseason, and Late Season. By selecting strawberry plant varieties that produce during different parts of the season, you can prolong your harvest and enjoy fresh strawberries for an extended period of time. June bearing strawberries are most often of the Garden Strawberry variety (Fragaria x ananassa). June bearing strawberries are often planted using the matted row system.
For reference, each of the June bearing strawberry types generally sets fruit for a total of 10 to 14 days. Early Season strawberry varieties usually begin fruiting in late spring. Early Midseason strawberry varieties begin fruiting about 5 days after Early Season varieties. Midseason strawberry varieties begin producing approximately 8 days after Early Season varieties. Late Midseason strawberry varieties begin fruiting about 10 days after Early Season varieties, and Late Season strawberry varieties begin their berry production about 14 days after the Early Season varieties.
Everbearing strawberry varieties:
Everbearing strawberries aren’t really “everbearing.” They generally produce two harvests per year: one in the spring and another in the late summer or fall. Under ideal conditions, it is possible for some everbearing varieties to produce three berry harvests. Most everbearing strawberry types are also Fragaria x ananassa hybrids, but some are of the species Fragaria vesca. In general, everbearing varieties put out less runners than the June bearing varieties, as most of the plants productive energy is directed toward producing multiple strawberry harvests. Everbearing strawberries are often planted using the hill system or in locations where space is limited.
Day-neutral strawberry varieties:
Day neutral strawberry plants are unique. Unlike June bearing varieties, day neutral strawberries will produce a good yield in the first year they are planted. They flower and set strawberries whenever the temperature is between 35 and 85 degrees. They will still be producing fruit in October during milder years. The drawback to day neutral strawberry plants is that they produce smaller strawberries than do the June bearing and everbearing strawberry varieties. Their fruit is usually small to medium in size, rarely exceeding one inch. Day neutral strawberry varieties are often planted using the hill system or in locations where space is limited.
Recommended Strawberry Varieties for Each State (or Province/Territory)
There are hundreds of different strawberry cultivars. Each one performs differently depending on the climate and conditions in which it is grown. To maximize strawberry production, it is important to choose a variety that is well-suited to your growing region. If you don’t already know which specific strawberry cultivars are a good choice for your state, you can find out by viewing the Recommended Strawberry Varieties by State (U.S.A.) or by viewing the Recommended Strawberry Varieties by Province or Territory (Canada).

The season factor has really got me in a twist because where i am there are no spring,summer, autumn and winter seasons. Here i deal with rain seasons and sunlight is always almost 12 hrs a day..I am in the equator. Which variety/varieties best suit my climate?
Please could you help? I have a friend who has asked me if I have ever come across the old variety of strawberry Hen-L? It was as far as he knows grown in the east of England by the farmers markets which often supplied the markets in London in approximately the 50’s/60’s.
I wonder if it has now disappeared but has been bred into a more modern variety?
Hello. I’m trying to find a particular variety of strawberry plant seeds to purchase on behalf of a friend in eastern Europe. Here is the name of the variety she has given me: Rasalu strawberries “Fairy Zbor”
Have you ever heard of such a variety? If yes, do you know where I could purchase the seeds?
I have heard they have many very delicious varieties of Strawberrries in Japan. I was recommended Ookimi, Toukun, Benihoppe/Red Cheeks by a japanese relative. There are many more too, I understand. Is there anyway to order some of these varieties in the USA. Thank You
