Unique, Sweet and Sour Refreshing Berries

The Strawberry Tree, or 'Arbutus Unedo', is an energetic tree that attracts attention all year with its vibrant colors that cause it to stand out as a unique and beautiful tree. Strawberry Trees are also extremely popular for the pounds of delicious fruit they produce every summer.

Glossy green leaves draw visual attention to the Strawberry trees during every season, but the real show starts when it blooms in the fall. Thousands of bell shaped white to pink blossoms erupt to fill landscapes with pops of color when other plants are entering dormancy.

Before you know it your Strawberry tree will be growing tons of bright yellow and red fruits that slightly resemble strawberries, giving this tree its name. The colorful fruit hangs all over the tree creating a visual spectacle that remains unrivaled.

The unique fruit has soft inner flesh with a mildly sweet flavor, similar to a fig. It's very popular to use the fruit of a Strawberry tree to produce sweet preserves and jams, but it's also often used for making wines.

Strawberry Trees, also known as 'Cane Apple Trees', have a compact space saving size, which makes them perfect for radiant hedgerows and border plantings. With their high level of drought tolerance they can survive in hot and dry conditions in the south.

The fuss-free Strawberry tree will thrive in a variety of different soils and conditions, and even makes for the perfect container tree. Place a few in containers to frame your entry ways or keep your trees inside, they will act as stunning accent pieces that will amaze your family and friends with their vivid colors.

Don't miss out on adding Strawberry Trees to your collection. Be sure to order yours while supplies last.





Strawberry Tree Pollination

Strawberry Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Strawberry Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Strawberry Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Strawberry Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Strawberry Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Strawberry Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Can the strawberry tree grow in a container?
Janice H on Aug 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The Strawberry Tree can be grown in a container as long as it is a well draining container. It has to be brought inside if you are Growing Zones: 4-7 . If you are in growing zones 8-11 outdoor planting is fine.
