Is this a june bearing or ever bearing plant? It says it may bear into fall?
Warren T on Jan 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Although Sequoia is officially considered Junebearing, the plants produce like an everbearing strawberry in mild climates, putting on berries throughout the warm season.
Sequoia Strawberries: The add says "Grow your own excellent dessert-quality fruit without the wait." Does that mean first season fruit?
Victor M on Jan 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You might see some fruit the first year, but we'd encourage you to pinch off most (if not all) of the flowers that appear the year they plant in order to let the plants establish the first year and fruit the next. "Without the wait" refers to the fact that Sequoia matures earlier in the year than other varieties.
What kind of soil do most strawberry prefer. Natural or acidic?
Bruce C on May 1, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Strawberries do best grown in a more neutral soil with a pH of 5.5 - 6.5.
How many plants in one order?
Harold P on Feb 24, 2020

Does the Sequoia Strawberry produce the same year I plant it? If I plant it this spring, will I be able to harvest at the end of June or July?
Lile M on Jan 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You may get a few berries, and maybe a few more if you had planted in the fall, but Sequoia typically takes 1-2 years to bear a full crop.
how do i prune grape vines?
Laura L on Jan 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Here is a very good article about pruning/training grape vines: //
This says "pkg 25". Does this mean I will receive 25 individual plants? Also, what is the spacing requirement?
Jason L on Jan 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sequoia Strawberries are shipped bare-root, which means you'll get a bundle of 25 plants. They need a little room; space them 6 to 18 inches apart.

These strawberries grew like mad. They produced the first year and still put out nearly 4 times the plants. There were still green leaves in the winter and flowers early this spring. I even thinned them out this spring.
Very good.

I Do recomend this strawberry plant. Good size as well as good flavor. The plants kept putting berrys on through out the summer. This was my first season so I am looking forward to next spring crop.

Growing like crazy
These are growing great. Have had enough for two pies the second year. Plants are vigorous and healthy. I have them in a tiered strawberry bed. I’ve been picking 10-15 a day for a week now (early June in Ohio). I kind of wish there were more ready at once for jam. But that may come in future years. I’m very satisfied with the purchase. Berries are well formed, medium to large size, and delightfully sweet right off the plants.

sequoia strawberry
Didn't realize this was an everbearing strawberry. I never have good luck with the everbearers. Seems like the hot dry summers reduces the production. I was surprised to see more berries in late july, early august and then again in october and we picked berries up until thanksgiving. very pleaseantly surprised!!

Great Strawberries
I love these big, healthy plants, and nice berries the first season. Waiting for current crop to develop but looks like a big harvest. I may replace some of my other berries with these plants.

We planted strawberries from your company last year and got to enjoy berries from all three selections right up until hurricane Florence came through our area and killed them all. Strawberries were delicious and a joy just to look at. Thank you.

bad luck with growing strawberries
I give up trying to grow strawberries because the strawberries either were tiny small or diseased. I wish they turned out better because of the high recommendations and I really wanted to grow my own berries.
