Everbearing Strawberrys are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Everbearing Strawberry will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Customer Reviews & Photos

My initial shipment of the Everbearing Strawberries was damaged in shipment, and when I alerted Fast Growing Trees customer service, they shipped a replacement set of sprouts to me the next Monday. All 25 plants arrived safely on schedule, and appear to be doing well in their new planters. I'm looking forward to a successful growing season this year. Thank you to FGT customer service for your quick response and actions. Keep up the great work.
I planted these strawberries back in 2016, all 25 plants, but soon after I had a massive decline in heath that kept me house bound. January 2020 I finally was able to go visit what I planted many year ago, and there all alive plus more have sprouted up. I counted around 35 strawberry plants, I expected them to be dead with no care at all for years, but nope there still alive. I hope to give some care for some fruit this year, but I'm not sure. Overall fast growing trees have the best trees, plants, berries I use to order alot from them. I have other plants/trees that made it all these years as well.
This plant is doing great so far!!
plants seem to transplant fine. some are flowering now.
Bought a bundle of 25 strawberry sprouts they came well packaged and ready to be planted. They are struggling a little in the hot weather here but are starting to bounce back.
Planting & Care
The Everbearing Strawberry is a hybrid species that is cultivated worldwide for its fruit, the strawberry. The fruit (which is not actually a berry, but an aggregate accessory fruit) is widely appreciated for its characteristic aroma, bright red color, juicy texture, and sweetness. It is consumed in large quantities, either fresh or in prepared foods such as preserves, fruit juice, pies, ice creams, and milkshakes. Artificial strawberry aroma is also widely used in many industrialized food products and in other industries for their scent such as bath and shower gels. Everbearing Strawberry Plants harness this desirability of the fruit and allow for an all year-round yield.
Seasonal information: Early spring is the best time to plant Everbearing Strawberry Plants. Cover the roots with soil, leaving the crown of the plant at the soil’s surface. During the first season, remove all blossoms from June-bearing plants. This will make your Strawberry harvests larger and the plants will send out more runners in subsequent seasons.
Location: Everbearing Strawberry Plants prefer a soil rich in all the basic nutrients, with a pH of 6–6.5. Everbearing Strawberry Plants plants are susceptible to root rot and must be planted in well drained soil, with crown set at soil level.
Planting instructions: Try to plant Everbearing Strawberry Plants on a cloudy day or during the late afternoon.
1) Set the Everbearing Strawberry Plants in the soil so that the soil is just covering the tops of the roots. Do not cover the crown.
2) After four or five weeks, the Everbearing Strawberry Plants will produce runners and new daughter plants.
Watering: When watering your Everbearing Strawberry plants, be sure to water only the roots and not the leaves, as moisture on the leaves encourages growth of fungus. Ensure that the Strawberries are grown in an open area to prevent fungal disease from occurring.
Fertilization: Start with a rich, organic soil. Apply a balanced fertilizer (10-10-10) at planting at the rate of one pound per 100 sq. ft. Fertilize again after renovation of June bearers or second harvest of day neutrals and Everbearing Strawberry plants types. Do not over fertilize or you will have excessive leaf growth and poor flowering. Do not fertilize Everbearing Strawberry Plants late in the season in colder climate to prevent new growth that will be damaged by frost.
Weed Control: In addition to the watering and fertilizing, it is important to keep your Everbearing Strawberry Plant patch weed-free, especially since weeds will steal moisture and nutrients from your shallow-rooted Everbearing Strawberry plants very quickly. Keep your berries harvested, and remove any rotting fruit immediately.
Pests and Disease: Around 200 species of pests are known to attack Everbearing Strawberry plants, both directly and indirectly. These pests include slugs, moths, fruit flies, chafers, Strawberry root weevils, Strawberry thrips, Strawberry sap beetles, Strawberry crown moth, mites, aphids, and others. The Strawberries are subject to damage from gray mold, rhizopus rot, and leather rot. The Everbearing Strawberry Plants can also develop disease from temperature extremes during winter. Birds love your strawberries! protect them with some means of wildlife netting or bird nets.
Pruning: You should regularly prune your Everbearing Strawberry Plants to maintain a healthy grow cycle.
Pollination: Spun-bonded row covers may also be used to speed harvest. Row covers are applied at the time of winter mulch removal and are left in place until flowering begins. This practice can speed harvest by as much as a week. Row covers must be removed at the time of flowering so pollination can occur. Fruits normally mature 28 days after pollination.
