Spring is a great time to be adding fruit trees to the backyard. Apple, peach, pear, cherry, and so many others are great additions. If you are a market grower, you may have customers asking about tree fruit and it may be time to finally decide on purchasing and plantings trees.
Strawberries (Fragaria species) are one of summer’s best treats. Depending on cultivar, June-bearing provide a large crop of larger strawberries and everbearing strawberries produce smaller berries throughout the growing season. There are also novelty types of strawberries that range in color (purple, yellow, white) or flavor. One unique novelty strawberry is the pineberry.
As we are approaching the half way mark for the month of June and looking towards those summer plans, one thing many people are looking forward to is summer Strawberries. Whether you are growing everbearing or June-bearing strawberries, harvest time is here for some and soon to be for others.
