Summers are hot and humid here in northern Florida. I chose June bearing as Ever bearing just doesn't stand up to the heat and humidity.

I have mostly everbearing strawberries and I am missing the all at once picking in June.
Lisa P on Jan 5, 2017
I have grown these since 1988, without any problems...disease resistant, did well thru drought and heavy wet Summers, produces well- enough for jams and freezing berries for winter....withstands harsh winters....firm berry...flavorful...
SueAnn B on Jun 13, 2016
Had these for years. The added disease resistance reduces the need to spray in high humidity regions.

I have already planted some of these and have been very pleased with the fruit. The 4-H judge has commented on how healthy the plants are.

Is this variety of strawberry everbearing?
Taylor B on Apr 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is a June-bearing strawberry.
what are the characteristics of loamy soil?
James K on Jan 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: They are looser, lighter and drain faster than clay, but with more organic material and nutrients than sandy soils. Kind of in-between, best of both worlds.
Do the allstar strawberries winter well in raised beds?
Linda S on Jul 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They do fantastically well. Mine are in raised beds that get covered with snow
all winter with temps down to zero. They come back each year in great shape.
This the second year and we have over a half dozen gallon bags in the freezer, we have been
eating them fresh all summer and my wife has made up a dozen jars of jam as well. They
are a great strawberry as is much of what Start's sells. Ron W
How many plants per order?
Sanders M on Mar 30, 2020
BEST ANSWER: 25 They came so late they were dead along with peach trees so will not
order again
Will they grow in a pot?
Susieq on Feb 12, 2020
We love the Allstar strawberries, but we have no experience growing them in a pot, we only planted them in a row on raised beds. I will tell you that they spread out very nicely! Good luck
where are you located?
Frances R on Apr 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We live in mid-Michigan (lower peninsula) and are considered zone 5a,
however this winter it was more like a 4b zone. These strawberries survived
the winter before and gave us wonderful strawberries this past summer.
Its very early spring here but looking at them today they are already showing green
leaves poking above the straw covering, so I'd say they survive the winter quite well.
What variety is a good cross pollinator for the Allstar?
Mike E on Nov 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We have cabot planted and they seem very compatible.
If planted in March will they bear this summer?
Dale C on Mar 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You will get a few berries, but you're better off to pinch the flowers and let the plant give you a good crop next year. It's hard to do, but will serve you better in the long run.
Does the all Atar strawberry come in a pack of 25 like the other or just one potted plant ?
Teresa on Apr 15, 2021
BEST ANSWER: It depends on your shipping and planting zone if there is any restriction on bare root. I currently se both options available at this time.
I planted the Allstar and Sparkle in hanging baskets. How do I care for them during the winter months? Zone 7B
Love2Garden on Apr 10, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Container-grown strawberries benefit from a little winter protection. One of the best ways is to place the container in a bigger container and then insulate the space between with leaves or straw.
You can also place the container on the ground next to a heated wall and ideally out of the winter wind. Insulate the exposed sides of the container with mulch, leaves or straw. Or just bury the container. The surrounding soil will insulate the roots over winter. Then dig up and hose down the container next spring.
Yet another option is to take the container into an unheated shed or garage for winter. Don't worry about lack of light. The plants will be dormant and don't need light in winter. You'll probably have to add just a little water every few weeks to keep the roots from getting too dry.
When should I plant fall strawberries?
Susanna A on Aug 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. As it turns out, planting the first week in September allows ample time for the strawberries to establish themselves

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
How to care in cold weather?
Wayne T on Jun 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: What I do is cover them up with mulch in winter time and by early spring the come up nice and fruitful.
If I plant in August(zone 7) will I be able to
harvest next June or will I have to pinch
blooms next summer and wait until the
following year to harvest?
Maryann H on Jun 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. You should have a harvest next June that you can enjoy.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
Will this plant produce for a couple of years? Or is it a one time type of deal?
Wil L on Apr 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Strawberry plants can produce fruit for five or six years. However, after the first two years the yields will be reduced dramatically and a build-up of pests and diseases can occur. Strawberry beds are usually kept for two or three years before they're cleared and planted on new ground.
How much does each plant yield?
Barney E on Apr 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Much depends upon amount of sun, rain and nutrients the plants receive, but you can expect 2-4 cups of berries from each plant at maturity (2-3 years old are the biggest crops).
If I order this in October can I grow it indoors with a grow light. If so, when will it bear fruit?
Karen S on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Strawberry plants are mostly perennial in nature, so they do go dormant and rest prior to fruiting in the spring. You may be able to grow them indoors under a grow light, but there is no way to determine if/when it will fruit under those conditions.
Is there a strawberry that grows erect on the stem vs close to the ground?

Very large, no taste.
Put out very large berries in the latter half of June. They had very little taste, a big core, and when tried to leave unpicked to ripen further for taste, they start to rot. These remind me of the strawberries you get in the super market that look good but have no flavor with a big hard core. I'd give them no stars. Waste of time and money. Rick

Great Strawberry
I have had these strawberries for 5 years and they have been great producers. My zone is 5 and it gets hot and dry in the summer and they still do fabulous. Bonus is they have beautiful fall foliage.

5 stars for ALLSTAR
I live in the inland northwest in Washington state. Zone 5. I did a test garden in raised beds of 10 different strawberries types most from stark bros. ALLSTAR outdoes them all in size, flavor, freezing and canning. They bare from summer to frost where I live. Janice in Newport WA

All Star Prove to Be an All Star
My strawberry patch is approximately 15x25 feet which I cover lightly with straw for the winter. 2015 brought an up-and-down spring and I had to cover and uncover the plants three or four times because of frost danger, but when the berries started coming on, the patch produced a bumper crop which continued from late May to early July. It is May 2016 and we are still eating last year's berries from the freezer and friends and neighbors picked several quarts besides what we put up. Looking at the patch this year, we're expecting a repeat performance. We are in west central Indiana and I definitely recommend Stark Bro's All Star strawberry.

very pleased with these stawberry plants. I did not let them flower or runner the first season and that has paid off in season two. I have over a dozen strawberries on many plants and taste is excellent. Now just need to keep the squirrels out

Allstar Strawberry Review
I have always used the allstar strawberry plants. They produce very nice firm berries good for jelly, eating, deserts and pies. The are a very dependable plant and berry. . I also like the fact that they are ready to pick in June which gives me July and August to harvest other fruits and vegetables.

Good sized delicious berries
I have four kinds of strawberries in raised beds. The All-star berries were the last type that I bought a year ago to complete my strawberry beds. These turned out to be some of the best berries. They were a good medium/large size and tasty.

Prolific strawberries
I left the strawberries to grow by themselves, with a few the first year. After two years, they have spread out all over my ground and have borne multiple strawberries, so fresh my kids eat them right away. No additional pesticides are used, and they are very sweet and fresh!! I hope to let it grow more this year, and cut back the runners to put its energy into making strawberries. No more contaminated strawberries for us!!
