The Jewel strawberry is one of the most popular, best-tasting strawberries. This excellent variety will give you an abundance of large, dark red berries. It is used extensively by commercial “pick your own” operations because of the fruit’s classic look and taste. The Jewel plant is vigorous and produces many runners that increase your crop year after year. Disease-resistant to red stele and verticillium wilt.
Jewel is Cold hardy, Ripens in June and is Self-pollinating. You may still want to plant pollinating partners to increase the size of your crops, but with self-pollinating varieties doing so is optional. You’ll get fruit with only one plant!
Care: Plant 12-16″ apart with the crown at soil level.
Needs rich well-drained soil, full sun, and 1-2″ of water per week.
