What Variety of Strawberry to Choose?

val1(z4 UT)April 27, 2013

I am redoing my strawberry bed and I want to find plants that have sweet, juicy berries. They will be for snacking and deserts so favor is important. I am looking for everbearing or day neutral varieties. I have called my local nurseries and below is a list of some of the ones they have. I would appreciate any input on the taste, size and yield of the berries and the resistance and growth of the plants. Thanks.

Tristar
Hecker
Ozark Beauty

Fort Laramie
Quinalt

I am in zone 4 in northern Utah.

Colorado State extension recommended fort laramie, quinalt and ozark beauty. I'm guessing your climate is quite similar (hot dry summers and cold cold winters) so they should do well there. I had tristar here and they were a pretty decent berry.

Thanks Sara & Nobueno. I read that in my zone, Sequoia strawberries are June bearing but in mild climates they can be everbearing. Fort Laramie, Quinalt, Tristar, and Ozark Beauty are all sold in my area as everbearing or day neutral so I firgured they were okay. I was wondering about the flavor of the berries. How were the Tristar?

Good but not outstanding. Like the all star better. Going with Mara du bois and Sparkle this year.
