Description

Loved by chefs for their sweet strawberry flavor, Tristar strawberries are also beautiful plants. Their attractive, notched leaves, white flowers and jewel-toned berries make them the best strawberry for hanging baskets. Easy-care plants are medium height and disease resistant. These plants are also everbearing, which means a heavy crop in early spring, lighter crops in hot summer weather, and increased size berries in fall. Cold-hardy. Self-pollinating.

for countless profound deep complex yet utterly ultimately simple philosophical reasons that play into the saving of the entire universe, the excommunication and banishment of all evil, and the manifestation of paradise for all. what choice did I really have, therefore?

What's the benefit of getting the pot vs. the plants?
Heather G on May 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Heather, I can't directly answer your question, but having ordered 250 strawberry plants from Stark in the last year, I can tell you the bare root are good. Last year I put in 150 in June and over 130 survived. The year I put in 100 and so far 98 are alive and thriving. Never have I bothered to pay extra for potted strawberries.
Will these strawberry plants produce berries the first summer I plant them? Or the second? Thanks :)
Kelly S on Mar 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Kelly,

These plants will definitely produce the first year! Being everbearing, they will produce fruit as soon as the plant is large/healthy enough to. I found that my first few fruits were few and on the small side, but as the plant grew over the course of the summer, the fruits became more numerous and larger.
I'd like to try my hand at planting strawberries in a pallet. I'd rather not go with bare root as I'd like to have berries quickly! If I go with the 4" pot...can they be transplanted into the pallet?
April P on Mar 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I think they can. They will take a little time to adjust to the root disturbance, but they should do fine.
I planted bare roots in holes in 5 gallon buckets. The bottom was where I watered into and it wicced up. I had strawberries all summer. They were not big, but they were sweet. I was pleased!

Delicious strawberry!
This is my first Spring and Summer growing strawberries, and in general, this is my first time ever growing strawberries. I did some research and found that the Tristar Strawberry variety was favored by chefs and gardeners, so I thought I'd give them a try and bought a bundle from Stark Bros. I have to say, I'm very impressed with the Tristar Strawberries! I bought a bundle of 25 roots and crowns in late March 2016 and I received three extra roots, which was a plus. I planted then in ten gallon Smart Pot containers since I heard that this variety does well in containers and hanging baskets. The plants formed leaves and blooms within just two weeks after planting and by the third week they already had strawberries forming. The blooms are very beautiful and have an amazing fragrance reminiscent of vanilla. By week seven I had a few ripe strawberries and they were delicious! They are about the size of a quarter and are very sweet and have a rich strawberry flavor. The flavor is way better than store bought strawberries without a doubt! I personally would wait until the Tristar strawberries turn a deep (dark) Crimson red before picking and harvesting. This is when they are the most flavorful. I plan on buying more Tristar strawberries from Stark Bros so I can hang some in baskets on my porch this Summer. Looking forward to harvesting more of these delicious strawberries. They are my new favorites.

Superior bare root
This year we decided to try strawberries in our straw bale garden. I have had Tristar before and have had an abundant harvest from a small number of plants (25), picking an extra large serving bowl of berries each morning. The bare roots that we received from Stark Bros had large healthy roots and after one week in the bales have lush healthy growth. Nine days after planting, we have flower buds. Wish I could post pics. Can hardly wait for harvest.

Sweet Berries All Summer Long
These strawberries are easy to cultivate, and they continued to produce more sweet, juicy berries into the early fall. My sister has had equal success growing these strawberries in the sandy soil of central Oregon as we have had here in eastern Pennsylvania.

I've planted these before and am looking forward to harvesting again. The plants came in short order, were easy to plant and are already showing signs of growth - just in the ground 3 days.

Prolific and Sweet
We received bare roots last year. Over the summer, all of the plants grew from the bare roots (I've bought bare roots from local discount stores that didn't sprout), and produced a few berries. This year, the plants started producing in March, and are consistently producing loads of juicy, sweet berries. I like this variety so much I plan to buy more.
