Strawberry variety selection

cactuspaul Tulsa zone7(7a)May 13, 2014

I am wanting to had a couple of new varieties of strawberries to my gardens. I presently grow Ozark Beauty and it is a good berry but looking for something sweeter. Also I have to be concerned about drought conditions. My currant strawberries grow in direct sun but after fruiting I have to add shade cloth and lots of watering. Any suggestions on a couple of varieties that I would be happy with. Thank Paul

One Texas gardening blog I know highly recommended Ogallala and Seascape as working well here, and was trying out Eversweet as well.

Here is a link that might be useful: Dallas Fruit & Vegetable Grower - Strawberries
