Kids will like big berries! Surecrop is an encouraging name...
Boo G on May 20, 2019
I've grown these in the past and have had excellent results. Of all the varieties I've tried through the years these are my favorite. My bed was decimated by rodents last year, so I'm starting a new bed in a protected area. It's a little later than I planned to get them started, but I'm sure they'll be OK.

I raised these years ago when they were first introduced in the sixties in my area. I sold them from a booth alongside the highway as a teenager.
Ernest S on May 29, 2018
My Grandparents had 6 acres of strawberries in the early 1960's. I can still remember the size and taste of those Surecrop berries. Nothing today compares to them.
Paul W on May 7, 2018
From the description, it sounds like a very hardy plant. My soil is a heavy clay soil, so I'm hoping this plant will survive and thrive.

You just can't beat 'Surecrop' for consistent form and delicious flavor. I have raised them (intermittently) since 1978. My absolute favorite.

Darren M on Mar 31, 2017
highly recommended by master gardener friend. Do not like ever bearing strawberries.
katherine s on Mar 20, 2017
I needed a disease-resistant variety that is also cold-hardy. I'm more concerned with the flavor of the berries than the size of the berries.
Donald B on Feb 28, 2017
I plant this kind every year. A good producer, nice and firm and red.
CALVIN L on Jan 5, 2017

old time dependable strawberry.
GLENDA D on Feb 27, 2016
I've been growing this variety for over 10 years for good reasons! They bear early in zone 7 (mid-May), produce abundantly, taste great (sweet and juicy), and aren't bothered (in our organic garden) by any pests or diseases.
P R on Feb 21, 2016

Good strawberry. Hardy plants with delicious berries and usually good yield.
DAVIDA F on May 30, 2019
do they produce the first year after planting?
Jennie on Feb 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Mine sure did (you are supposed to pinch them the first year to encourage better production in the future, but I never do).
are the strawberries heirloom ?
Enoch DeBus on Apr 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It was introduced in 1956 by the USDA. It's technically not an heirloom, but it is an old, tried and true variety that has a wonderful strawberry flavor.
are the berries firm?
clairmae on Aug 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Firmness is one of Surecrop's most desirable characteristics. Please keep in mind that any strawberry variety will become soft if left to ripen too long!
Are these berries seedless?
Shirley U on Dec 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No strawberries are seedless; if you're asking because you want make jelly, wine or seedless jam, all you need to do is run the berries through a food mill. We have one on sale right now: //
I an planting 2500 surecrop plants in two weeks. I got surecrop so they can produce strawberries for a few years. My question is, when I plant these can they grow back each year if I'm using the plastic mulch?
Heather on May 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: WOW, that's a lot of strawberries! A few things: mulch has nothing to do with whether or not the strawberries come back every year; unless voles eat the roots, they dry out and die from drought or there is a prolonged deep freeze and the plants are in pots or not overwintered with straw/mulch, they will come back every year. They will not produce much at all the first year; in fact, you should pinch off the flowers and any runners the first year and you will get much better succeeding second and third year crops. Take the second-year runners and replant them and you will have free strawberries forever. Strawberry plants quit producing measurable crops after about the fourth year; even that crop will be thinner than the third year, which will probably be your best. About the mulch: red plastic mulch is great for strawberries and tomatoes. You will definitely get a bigger crop, have a weedless patch and save on your water bill.

By far the best strawberry for home gardens
Shurecrop is an old and proven strawberry. Large crop of nice berry's every year for many years. Excellent for the organic growers as it resists most problems with little help. One of the best freezing or canning berries when you have had your fill of fresh. And I eat a lot of fresh berry's.

Have used these strawberries for years. They are the best for flavor not size, but they are dependable and have true flavor unlike the large tasteless giant sizes. Great for homemade ice-cream.

This is the second season since we planted these. Instructions were to pinch buds first season for better production next season. So far we have an enormous amount of strawberries. The first few so far that have ripened, however, are mis-shaped, but delicious nonetheless. I gave it 4 stars only because it's too soon to tell how well these do overall.

For years, I have only grown Surecrop strawberries. They are prolific producers and incredibly delicious. Whenever I need to rejuvenate my bed, I always buy Surecrop and I always buy from Stark!

Big And Hardy Strawberry
Very dependable, hardy and good tasting berry. I have grown this berry at many different locations and soil types. From hard clay to sandy soil and it does very well. I raise them organicly and only use compost for their food. I would recomend.

Surecrop Strawberry review
Surecrop strawberries are great. Last June was a good yield of firm sweet berries. This year the plants have a large amount of fruits on them and I'm hoping for an abundance of ripe strawberries. Plan to expand my bed and will again choose Surecrop.
