Tired of crunchy, flavorless strawberries? Jewel has that fantastic REAL old-fashioned strawberry flavor and melting luscious texture! Jewel performs well over a wide range of growing conditions. Jewel strawberry is our #1 midseason variety, recommended for commercial growers and home gardeners. Jewel has large berries with superb quality and flavor. Great variety for home gardening due to its overall quality and consistent performance. The 1st and 2nd berry pickings are plump sized berries for eating out of hand and the later smaller pickings are fantastic for jams and freezing.
Make sure to keep your plants thinned to 1 foot apart every March or April before the plants flower. Having too many plants crowded together creates shade and humidity on the berries which leads to moldy berries. Pull out excess plants in March and replant or compost. Strawberries are very easy to grow and produce in 1 year or less from planting. In Kentucky and nearby regions strawberries always do best with SPRING/EARLY SUMMER PLANTING ONLY. May do better in zone 4-5 with some mulch cover in winter. Cannot ship to CA, OR, WA, FL.
