The Jewel Strawberry is one of the most popular and successful strawberries. They produce large, sweet fruit loaded with flavor that’s consistent throughout each plant growth cycle – never disappointing!

Jewel strawberries produce white-petalled flowers with yellow centers in early spring which, once pollinated, develop into strawberries around the month of June.

This June-bearing strawberry can be successfully grown in containers and is excellent for eating fresh, making jams and pies, or even for freezing to enjoy during winter.

  • A full sun-loving plant that is best grown in fertile, moist, and well-drained soil.
  • Strawberry plants will need to be watered regularly and fertilized, especially during the summer.
  • Jewel strawberries, as with most strawberries, are susceptible to diseases such as root rot, grey mold, and verticillium wilt.

The easy-to-grow plants are well adapted and suitable in many climates—it’s no wonder that this variety of strawberries deserves their consistent placement as one of the best tasting types on earth!
