Now that summer is here, it's time to go back outside and take it all in: Warm breeze, longer days to kick back on the porchand firing up the grill. But our favorite part? Harvesting delicious, all-natural bounties and planting all-American favorites to enjoy for years to come, from Strawberry Plants to Blueberries and more.
And since the season for celebrating is here, we're highlighting our picks for July 4th and beyond.
With a harvest from May to June (and the potential to fruit in the first year), there's nothing like the Maxim Strawberry to symbolize the season.
Plus, you can grow them anything - from garden plant beds to pots to your own outdoor strawberry patch. The Maxim delivers ease and flavor, since you also get the classic sweet, juicy flavor you love from Strawberry Plants...just in a strawberry that's four times the average size!
So, with a little sun and water, you're looking at a summertime harvest of delectable snacks, right in your own garden.
The perfect patriotic partner to our Maxim Strawberry - The Sweetheart Blueberry. Strawberry Plants and Blueberriesare a match made in heaven, and it's easy to see why: Their delicious flavor combinations, effortless harvests and simple growth.
Much like the Maxim, the Sweetheart Blueberry delivers huge, sweet berries...sometimes in the first season. You'll harvest these plump treats in June in September for from-scratch pies, tarts and more. And the best part? You can get up to 15 pounds of blueberries in a single year!
You've heard the saying, "American as apple pie." So, what's a fruit list to celebrate summer without the classic Apple Tree? In this case, one of our favorites is the Fuji Apple Tree, known for itspotential to produce a large harvest as soon as the first year under optimal conditions.
Having the Fuji is like having a supermarket in your own backyard. And not only is it easy to grow, but it's also reliable...producing the same delicious fruit year after year.
4. Meyer Lemon
Last but not least is the ever-popular Meyer Lemon, another essential to our list of summer must-haves. The season isn't the same without sweet, refreshing lemonade to pair with your favorite summertime meals.
And there's nothing like completely homemade, from-scratch blends. Plus, Meyer Lemons are different from the small, tart and often acidic lemons at your grocery store. Our Meyer Lemon fruit is a cross between traditional sour lemons and sweet oranges, so you get both sweet and savory flavors from each squeeze.
The best part is they're easy to grow, too, indoors or out. That means the promise of home-grown is just a click away.
