Stark Bro's Store
I asked the grower at my farmers market what variety they sold, and they said Ozark Beauty. I also saw this variety at my local nursery. So when I was shopping for fruit trees and I saw that Stark Bros. also carried this variety, I had to get them. They are performing magnificently. I am currently picking over a pound a day.

We have lots of strawberry varieties, but one that starts ripening mid-summer and keeps going until frost?! Yes, please!

ernest R on May 5, 2016
You should see how perfect our berries were from the first Ozarks we ordered two years ago! These are the best things! Anyway, some old ones (don't know the name, but not ever-bearing) that my husband moved with us didn't do well at all, so naturally, more Ozarks.

I have grown these strawberries for many years. I have lived S.E. TN. For a while. 12 yrs. In the valley and 22 on the mountain and they produced really well both spots.
THOMAS J on Apr 18, 2016
I have a 5'x8' raised bed prepared for this. I wanted a disease resistant ever bearing variety. Ever bearing plants produce fewer new starts. That is good for my small raised bed. This variety was also one of the ones recommended by the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension.

Cold hearty and self pollinating. I hope it does well in my South Dakota garden.

I already enjoy the honeoyes (have for years) but I'm buying these to have a few berries thru season...my expectations of day-neutrals are, by experience, realistically low: if you want abundance, get june-bearers
Paul R on Mar 24, 2016
I wanted a day neutral and a June bearing, this is the best day neutral
H Phil K on Mar 21, 2016
Due to my growing zone (4B - Colorado mountains) I was looking for specifically cold hardy fruit plants and when I read that this was one of the most hardy and vigorous plants, I thought this would be a good choice. Ozark Beauty is also a very popular strawberry plant from what I can tell, so I hope they're beautiful and tasty as well! Also the fact that this is an everbearer is what made me choose these as I would like consistent production throughout the season.
Emily G on Mar 17, 2016
I've grown this variety for years in Boise Idaho. They have always been the best.
Prolific "If" you keep them picked or they'll start running. I allowed the plants on the edge of raised beds to do this and used the new plants as replacements as the existing plants aged. Berry successful.
Curtis W on Mar 16, 2016

Do strawberries return every year or do they have be planted annually?
RK in Iowa on May 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This information varies depending on variety, but a general rule is that the most plentiful crops occur on plants that are 2-4 years old. As your strawberry plants grow they will put out runners to spread and grow into new plants. Every other year or so pluck some of these baby plants and transfer them into a newly prepared bed. These plants will grow and begin producing heavily by the time your original plants start to dwindle in production (2-3 years later). Then sacrifice the originals and prepare the bed to receive the third generation of plants from runners of your second bed. Alternating back and forth every 2-3 years or so will always ensure 1 bed is always at peak production.
will Ozark Beauty plants set out in April produce berries this fall?
Tracy on Mar 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they will set fruit long before that; but I pinched a good deal of it off so the plants could focus their energy on growing strong for the winter. I did keep some for snacking later in the season, though. They were wonderful producers in their first year.
How do you plant strawberries?
Bev L on May 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are very easy to plant. I plant mine in little two gallon pots which I keep
on my patio. They produce lots of great ripe berries all summer.
You can also simply prepare a bed and stick them in there. as well. Truth be told, they are very easy to grow. You just stick them in the soil - pots or beds - water and soon the leaves will come out. The hard part is getting to the ripe berries before your backyard wildlife does. They like strawberries even more than you do.

Great Strawberry!
I planted the Ozark Beauty Strawberries in a raised bed in my SE GA garden last year and they are growing great. The plants quickly filled in the raised bed last year, survived a couples of freezes under a row cover, and quickly recovered this spring. This is my first harvest and the strawberries have been plentiful. The best part - they are very tasty!

Bumper crop
We received healthy, robust plants (with a few extras added). After doing the required blossom removal the first year, we have had endless crops from these plants--one does have to take measures to protect the ripening berries from the birds, chipmunks and other critters by using netting. (We learned that the hard way.) The runners that each plant sends out must be planted in a new bed, thus a continuous source of plants bearing fruit.
The berries are quite large and a little tart, which makes them delicious in any dessert requiring sugar. Mine usually are devoured daily in yogurt, cereal, etc.

This is an easy variety to grow, thankfully. I'm not an expert gardener. I hardily recommend the Ozark Beauty.

This is the only real forever strawberry I have ever seen. They are huge and tasty. If I had more room I would buy more Ozarks! Maybe I should find more room.

Love this strawberry
I am an very amateur strawberry grower and have a slope next to my horse barn that they grow on. This strawberry grows excellent with absolutely amazing large berries that taste wonderful! It also has very large ground covering foliage that helps keep out weeds. My strawberry patch receives minimal maintenance and these strawberries thrive.

This is the 2nd year and they are doing great! They survived the winter and are spreading like weeds. They are loaded with the first batch of fruit and will be ready in a day or 2.

Best Strawberry Yet
I planted these strawberries last year, pinching any blooms that came along throughout the summer. This spring they were FULL of blossoms. Now, in mid-May, there are massive, sweet, juicy fruits all over my garden!!! I love it!

Ozark Beauty Strawberry
These are doing very well with a 100% survival rate and even have a few blossoms after only a month in the ground. I'll get a few "token" strawberries this year and as long as I keep the chickens out of them, it'll be a good harvest next year.
