This variety has a good reputation as a flavorful everbearing strawberry. I???m establishing a strawberry patch for my daughter and son-in-law and they love the little wild strawberries which grow in Ohio. It will be nice to have everbearing strawberry throughout the growing season.

Ozark Beauty Strawberries are Fabulous. I have grown them before in an 8x8 bed . 2nd year I was picking 1 GALLON every other day. An excellent pick. I suggest using 4' bed width so you can pick them easier.

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.

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.
Do my strawberry plants need protection from the winter elements?
Toni R on Jun 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In southern Michigan we don't do anything to protect our berries. We have a 25x60 orchard where we use ozark beauties as ground cover. My attitude is very much that a harsh winter can't kill all of them--nothing can, they are strawberry plants. :)
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.
Can I plant these strawberries in my garden in southern maine this September and have berries next summer, 2017?
Thanks
Diane
Fotini on Jul 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The happy answer is, "yes!" It is actually best to plant strawberries in the fall, as they develop a strong root system that gets them off to a great head start the following spring. Keep us posted on your progress.
How many strawberries can each plant produce?
Terry P on Mar 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That figure will vary a great deal depending upon how much sun the plant receives, what kind of fertilizer it gets, how much rainfall there is, etc. This is a heavy producer, so it will produce on the high end of the range from 2/3 cup of berries per plant to 4 cups per plant.
Will these strawberries produce the first year?
Ralph J on Sep 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Year two and they were great and should be continuing.
I just purchased some Ozark. I'm am planning on mulching them with my backyard pine needles as I have with my blueberries for the winter. Is this a good idea? Or do I need to mulch with straw?
DobbysSox on Apr 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Pine needles are too acidic for strawberries and can even give them a strange flavor; straw is a better choice. Test the soil to check the pH; strawberries prefer 5.5 to 6.5. If you need to raise the pH; add lime; if you need to lower the pH, add a soil acidifier.
When do newly planted strawberries produce ?
Dan F on Apr 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Small crop if you get them in early, and keep clipping any runners. You can let the runners develop at the end of the season when you've had enough berries. The energy that goes into the runners takes away from fruit production, so best to choose one or the other.
Should you pick off blooms the first Year for everbearing strawberries?
Jackie B on Feb 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's best to, at least, pick off the first blooms in order to allow your plants to get established; and, you will have much larger better berries. It's heart breaking; but, you won't regret it.
Which Strawberrys make the best jam?
Jan H on Nov 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: So I feel like any strawberry can make an excellent jam. All you need is strawberry, sugar, and pectin.

My bigger concern with jam is making sure there are enough berries all at one time to make the jam happen. It takes a decent pile of berries. If you are working with a single bed of 4x12 or smaller and jam is your biggest concern, you probably need June bearing berries. If you have a couple hundred square feet that you can ground cover, nothing (in my opinion) is better than the Ozark Beauty for anything--including jam.
What variety of strawberries should I use if planting in containers?
Ralph J on Sep 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can choose any variety you like; all strawberries will thrive in containers that get full sun. Just make sure the variety is rated for your growing zone.
I have a 2???X8???X1??? deep above ground planter. How many Ozark Beauty plants do I need?
Dale H on Sep 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Strawberry plants need a square foot of space each, so you would need 16 plants to fill the planter.
If I buy one of these at the end of the summer, can I keep it in a pot over winter and then plant it out when i gets warm again?
Gwen F on Aug 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can plant it in the fall and it will produce a few berries next spring. There's really no need to keep it in a pot over the winter.
How many strawberry plants should I buy? I have four feet of space.
Shay123 on Apr 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Strawberry plants need a square foot of space each. If your planting bed is 4' by 8" wide, you can get away with 4 plants, but the bed shouldn't be any narrower or the root system won't be able to develop properly.
How will these do if planted in the fall in the Pacific Northwest?
Anne N on Sep 14, 2017
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.

That said, fall is an excellent time to plant strawberries. You'll get fruit 2 weeks sooner next summer. :-)

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.

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.

Great strawberry for a home garden
Ozark Beauty is a wonderfully rich flavored small berry. This is true strawberry flavor - the way nature intended us to perceive strawberries. Though they do make runners, I have found Ozark Beauty to be more manageable than many other varieties. These are very delicate fruits though: pick with care as they bruise very easily and eat as close to immediately as you can manage (as if that would be a problem). When picking, it is best to use a large bowl to prevent damaging the tender fruit. Ozark Beauty is an ever bearing variety, but truthfully, most of your crop will arrive in June with the occasional berry appearing later in the season.

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!

Extremely satisfied with this strawberry
The strawberry didn't do well for the first year and only 5 plants survived probably because I left in the bag for too long. They took off in the 2nd year and reproduced so many new plants that they filled up a huge veggie bed in two months. New plants started to produce strawberries in a months. They are definitely much much better than varieties many of my friends bought from stores. They are absolutely tasty. Highly recommended.
