Strawberries (Fragaria species) are one of summer’s best treats, and there is still time now in May to plant them.

June-bearing strawberries provide one large crop of bigger berries and everbearing strawberries produce smaller berries throughout the growing season. There also are novelty types of strawberries that range in flavor or color – such as purple, yellow, white.
