They have grown very well in my garden in the past and multiply extremely well. We love the flavor and the fact they are almost care free. I'm wanting to plant a berry I know has been successful.

large,late quality berry, but Ozark and Sparkle far sweeter
in my trials.
BRIAN B on Mar 7, 2017
I have grown before and love the berries and great reproduction of runners.
Pam T on Jun 18, 2016
Had these for years. The added disease resistance reduces the need to spray in high humidity regions.

Awesome taste! Nice flavor
Jerry O on May 26, 2016
I am an FFA member doing strawberries as my sae project. Local customers have been asking for jewels so I am adding a row to my project this year. I grow with drip irrigation and plastic. Currently I have cavendish, seascape, tribute and San Andreas. It will be interesting how these Jewel berries compare!

Will you get berries this year?
2Flower3 on Mar 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: depending on how quickly your plants establish themselves don't be surprised
if you see a few blossoms here and there. The rule of thumb however is to pinch them off
the first year and allow the root base to build up. If you want to leave a couple blossoms so you can sample a few berries later in the season, pick your strongest plants to leave them on. Let the weaker plants work on growth and not berry production. you will reap the benefits come next year
I live in Central mi. Am I to late to plant?
Bill E on Jun 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Because weather and soil conditions vary so much from year to year and even within your zone, it's best to think of your planting time as a range of favorable conditions instead of an exact time.

You can plant new plants and trees: 1) when the ground is not frozen, 2) when daytime temperatures are above freezing (32??F) and below 90??F, and 3) when extreme weather (blizzard, hail, torrential rain, etc.) is not in the forecast. Be sure to keep plants watered if you're transplanting in warm and/or dry weather.
does using 2 self pollinators increase production?
J V on Sep 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can use two different varieties of strawberries that are each self-pollinators to increase production, but not two of the same variety.

Very nice strawberries
I ordered some last summer because they were on sale. Glad I did. They were my favorite strawberries in a very long time. I live in zone 4A, in Minnesota, and the plants are already coming up and look quite healthy. I'm ordering more.

Large Strawberries!
Very large berries; some double or triple-wide! Had enough from 25 plants to eat fresh, freeze, and share with friends. Strong plants which hold berries up off of soil. Some blighting noticed on leaves by mid-June in southern Wisconsin.

Plethora of strawberries
We had so many sweet and delicious berries we couldn't eat them all! I froze some and shared some with friends and neighbors.

Wonderful even after the rain
We have had quite a bit of rain here and the strawberries fared very well. In past years with other varieties they would have got soft and mushy, these stayed firm and fresh. Berries are a nice size. Will buy again.

Nice hardy plants, good size berries but not close to the sweetness of Ozark and Sparkle.

Good berries!
We got good production from our plants which were planted in different ways, some in a bed, some in planter pots. All produced well. Berries are not as sweet as some are but had good flavor.

Multiplies well.
Like most "June bearing" strawberries here, it peaks around the end of May. The flavor is good, but not exceptional. They tend to hold the berries up off the ground, which reduces mold and slug damage. It likes to crawl out of its pot and send runners everywhere, so I'm putting them around the base of my fruit trees. This seems to make a pretty good companion planting.
