Reviews about the sweet taste!
Linda N on Jan 14, 2021
Plan on putting it in a cattle trough planter. It bears fruit off of unrooted runners and is good for planting in raised beds or troughs.

What is the best berry for Charleston, sc and when to plant?
Peggy V on Dec 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Peggy. The best berry is the one you enjoy the most. Maybe you prefer apple pie to strawberry or blueberry pies. In any case there is no wrong berry for SC.
Can tribute be cloned?
pbpate on Dec 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Do you mean will it produce runners that can be cut and planted to create new plants? If so, the answer is yes. To plant the runners, I gently lift the roots of the runner out and plant it in a small pot. Once it's established in the pot, I cut the part of the runner connecting it to the original plant and plant the potted runner in the ground.
If I plant these stawberries this spring, will they produce berries this year?
Dan s on Jan 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Our strawberries, except the Eversweet, typically take 1-2 years after planting to reach maturity and bear fruit. The Eversweet Everbearing will typically bear the first year of planting.
how do they handle heat and humidity?
DeeDee on May 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Dee Dee,
I live in far northern MN with very long days and cold outside temps. I am using these strawberries in hanging gutters in my greenhouse as part of an experiment with high latitude ag research. They do very well in that condition. High day temps, cooler night temps, day temps will reach 95 before the exhaust fan kicks in, nights are in the 60s. Humidity around 80%. They will continue to produce in those circumstances till the beginning of Oct, here when it has already frosted outside. Lower in the state around latitude 45 deg, they do well outside for growers, Hope this helped.
What are the main differences between Tristar and tribute strawberries. In the past we planted one or the other and we had excellent berries all summer into late fall but can`t remember which variety is was?
Fred I on May 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We have grown Tribute for years, so thought that we would try Tristar also.
Tristar was slower to establish, had fewer berries and a large core. I will not plant they again here in northern Colorado
Which of your strawberries are non GMO?
S. S on Jan 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: All of our trees, plants and seeds are non-GMO.
What does "vigorous day-neutral plants" mean?
Pam B on Mar 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: "Vigorous" means they grow quickly and "day neutral" is just another name for everbearing, meaning they flower and fruit throughout summer and into fall instead of putting out all their fruit in June the way June-bearing strawberry plants do.
Would it be a good idea to plant three everbearing strawberry varieties for best odds of a larger summer production?
Randy M on Mar 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, indeed. You will get many more berries with different varieties planted near one another.
How far are these spaced? I have a 7
X 12 foot space to fill.
Vina M on May 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As stated in the Size & Spacing characteristics, "We recommend spacing these plants 12" apart to ensure room for growth." They can be planted closer, but, with their mature size in mind, the plants are easier to maintain with their ideal spacing.
What is the product? Bareroots? How many?
AnnieEm H on Mar 27, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The drop down box shows available in 2 options. bare root pack / 25 plants or a 4 inch single potted plant.
What kind of strawberries to grow in zone 10B?
po f on Mar 23, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Our strawberries typically are not rated for that type of growing environment. It is best to reach out to your local county extension office and they can let you know what will grow locally and what others have been successful with. The most important thing to be looking for is the amount of chill hours needed for fruit production.

Tribute Strawberry Keeps Producing
We tried all of the everbearing strawberries. Tribute Strawberry is by far the best of all, best growth, production, and especially flavor, with really no comparison to the others. We live in Utah at about 3500 foot elevation and have hot dry summers. We grow organically, and Tribute has the best size of all everbearing strawberries we tried. Tribute is really dependable and sends out few runners. We pick strawberries almost every day. Tribute starts bearing early and keeps going right up until the first winter freeze. Then we lift the plants and put them in heavy duty gallon zip bags and refrigerate plants over the winter, before planting them out again in the spring. We don't grow any other strawberries. We tried Tribute strawberry in raised garden beds, in irrigated rows, but eventually had trouble with weeds and some berries going bad when they touch the ground. Then we used various strawberry towers, plastic and ceramic, and then various sizes of pots stacked, and now we use large individual seven gallon pots, each containing 5 to 7 plants, organic fertilizer, compost, and peat moss with daily drip irrigation. Wow, we get a fabulous continuous crop of the best tasting strawberries ever.

Almost 100% sprouted!
I only had one root fail to grow out of 150! Flowers and green berries already 5/15/16.

A hardy, dependable and tough winner of a strawberry.
We ordered 50 plants, bare root and they are doing beautifully, all 50 of them. We have some from last year that have bloomed and have berries on them, of course not ripe yet but will be soon. We live in SE Ohio and they are performing beautifully. My daughter lives north of Dayton, OH and is in a zone colder than us and has good luck there too. The taste is amazing.

trbute strawberry
we planted tribute strawberries last spring and are very impressed berries are only medium in size but have very good flavor and they are prolific not only did we have berries all summer, but we were able to clear away the first light snows and pick strawberries !!

Bountiful production
Gave me a continuous supply of berries over the last two summers. Starts fruiting early and lasts all summer long. Berries are not overly large, but are shapely and very sweet. I don't like varieties that get large and "mutant" shaped. They propagate aggressively so a few plants go a long way.

Awesome Strawberries for Colorado
These strawberry plants were amazing even in the first year. Very easy to grow even in southern Colorado where we get little rain and very hot temps in the summer. They do so amazing in their production and flavor that I would recommend anyone, especially first time strawberry growers, to get these plants. Really nice to have Strawberries all season long. Absolutely wonderful!!!

the tastiest strawberry I've ever tasted - easy to plant and tend. Lots of berries in 2015, which was the year I planted the starts in the spring.

Great strawberries!
I planted Tributes last spring, and then kept the blossoms picked off until August, as recommended. From then until hard frost we had a regular moderate crop of wonderful, sweet strawberries that I picked about every other day! The plants over-wintered well and are blooming now. We love these!

Tribute Strawberry
Nice firm berry with a great taste. Good crop in June with moderate production through out the rest of summer clear up to hard freeze. With row cover or hoop I'm sure you could enjoy berries through the winter. Located in southern Ill.
