Holy Moly! I ordered some Strawberries from Edible Landscaping, and a Tristar, part of the order is HUGE! Check out this photo!
Not the best photo, but man is this plant big! Look at the size of that leaf!

In that same order I ordered a Yellow Wonder that was a huge mass of strawberry goodness. But The red Wonder was about the size of a Hershey kiss, which is fine, Another looked decent sized. Each cultivar is so different. I'm having fun trying different varieties, just the appearance is striking, I have been following protocol for strawberries and removing all flowers, and they all have a lot, it has been very painful. I'll give the plants a month to establish, then I'm not removing anymore that happen to form! I think these are greenhouse grown, so I'm slowly exposing them to being outside. 4 hours today, 8 tomorrow, morning sun Friday, etc.

Here is a photo of the whole plant. The other plants are some of the other strawberries with the order. Also a small wyeberry, and at the far end of the table are 2 small elderberry bushes from another nursery, Black Lace, and Black Beauty. All I feel need acclimation, so are in for the night.
