June bearing or Ever bearing
I'm preparing a spot to plant strawberries this fall and am trying to determine which variety to go with. I'm new to planting and growing strawberries so please excuse me if I sound ignorant. My understanding is that June bearing varieties can be harvested during a couple week window over mid summer, while ever bearing varieties will produce fruit all summer and into fall.
Question is this, why would you want to plant June bearing plants that have a short harvest time when you can use an ever bearing variety that will give you a much great yield over the season? Do the June bearing varieties taste better or have other superior qualities?
