Charley J on Apr 17, 2019
I???ve chosen these type of strawberries 3 times over the years as I need to replant my beds. I plant these for some eating because of their juicy and delicious taste, but because they come in quickly, they are also ideal for juice that I freeze and make fresh tasting jam all year long. Half of my beds are always honeoye.

Ok I'm a newbie at this a package of 25 seedlings or seeds?
Peggy V on May 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They're neither - they are bare-root plants, meaning they are plants without soil or a pot. As soon as you get them, they should be planted, or you can put them in the refrigerator for a couple of days if need be. Just mound up a row of soil, separate the plants and space them about 8" to 1" apart. Spread out the roots over the mound, then cover the roots until the dirt is just up to the base of the root crown (where the roots come out of the top). Water them in well and keep them moist but not wet - that could rot the crowns and the plants won't make it. When you see flowers the first year (they will come in a few weeks), pinch them off. I know, it's hard. :-) But you'll get a big crop of berries next year!
My Honeoye plants are 2 maybe 3 years old. The berries are small in size. Is the soil lacking in something? If a fertilizer is recommended; what kind and when do I apply? What would a good berry to cross with - Sure crop, ozark beauty? That are the ones I'm most familiar with. I would like to grow BIG /
Diane T on May 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: First, we suggest you do a soil test. Strawberries require a pH of 5.5 to 6.5, which is slightly acidic. If the soil is too alkaline, you won't get those big berries you want. Second, we have a special Strawberry Fertilizer which contains a very precise formulation of micronutrients, just for strawberries. A little bit goes a long way. You can read customer reviews about this fertilizer; it's truly superior to anything else. If you want to learn more, you can go here: //

As for pollinators, you can plant some Surecrop or Ozark Beauty and that will help. Also make sure you're attracting enough bees to your plants. Let us know how it goes?
winter cover for strawberries?
Jay S on Sep 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I live near St. Louis and our winters can really vary. So around the end of November I will cover our strawberries with straw to protect them from a potential rough winter. In late winter/early spring ... when I take a peak under the straw and see some new growth ... I will remove about half the straw. I don't remove all the straw just in case we experience a cold snap! Generally, I forget about taking off the remainder of the straw but it all works out ok because as the plants grow the straw helps to keep the weeds down. Hope this helps you out and you have a successful strawberry crop! There is nothing better than finding that first strawberry of the season and popping it into your mouth!
Can this be planted behind barley or wheat?

Ellen M on Mar 29, 2020
BEST ANSWER: If I remember right it was 24 bare root plants. They did awesome. Even after sitting in my garage for over a week because I forgot about them! Pretty hard to kill!!
I tried to order Honeoye Strawberry, but it shows prohibited . I am in Zone 7???in Mississippi, yet I keep getting emails that say I need to hurry up and order if I want them. What is the deal?
Anita S on May 18, 2020

Honeoye Strawberry
A large, firm, sweet and extremely delicious berry. My wife and grandsons love them in their smoothies. Also they freeze very well. My best success is when I pull all the blossoms they year in which I plant this variety and then will have three very productive harvests. The year of the third harvest I put in a new planting and remove the old plants after I have picked the berries.

Excellent variety.
Last year bought the strawberries from starkbros, pinched blossoms off last summer, this is the first season, strawberries are delicious and big, we had berries before May 1st. I would recommend this variety to everyone

Great strawberry
Honeoye produces large beautiful delicious berries that do not rot under wet conditions like so many others do. Plants are also very winter hardy. I didn't cover them this past winter and they weren't hurt a bit. I tried other varieties but these are the only ones I grow now.

Honeyoeye strawberry: Old variety but great
I am enjoying this older variety of strawberry. Very strong grower producing good size and flavorful berries. Plants have been very healthy The mother plants have produced runners and ultimately daughter plants just as strong. Proper soil and bed preparation have made growing strawberries a pleasure. Highly recommend this variety to new home growers.

My strawberries are in their second year and they're exploding out of their 4'x4' box! There are too many blooms to count. Last year (their first summer) we pinched blooms off as directed. I could not be more impressed with their performance so far. We already have some fairly large green berries and it's only mid-May! Can't wait until harvest!

Not for Utah
Utah soil is very alkaline and so not very good performance with this berry in Utah. Better choices are Cavendish and Sure Crop. Both perform well here in Utah.
