June-bearing Strawberry ‘Earliglow’ is popular with home gardeners for its amazing flavor. This variety produces firm glossy, medium-sized berries with a fantastic sweet flavor. As the season fades, berries will become smaller but taste will never be compromised. Eat these strawberries fresh or freeze for later. These are a great strawberry for a beginner gardener and favorite for the experienced gardener. (Fragaria x ananassa)

15 June bearing Strawberries Earliglow

Plant strawberries in spring as soon as your soil can be worked to a depth of 6-8”. Well draining sandy loam with plenty of organic matter in a sunny location is preferred.

Plant strawberries in spring as soon as your soil can be worked to a depth of 6-8”. Well draining sandy loam with plenty of organic matter in a sunny location is preferred.

PLANTING DIRECTIONS:
1. The most common method for planting strawberries is in the matted row system. Set your new plants 18-24” apart in rows 3-4’ apart.
2. Allow their new runners to set in the row up to 2’ wide, removing plants that stray beyond that boundary.
3. Be careful to keep the crowns just at the soil surface, do not plant too deep or they might rot or too shallow as they will heave.
4. Water well at time of planting and continue irrigation through September as drought stress will affect harvest. Fertilize if necessary.
5. Remove flowers the first 2 months of the season so that plants produce more runners.

HARVEST TIME: Spring and Fall

HABIT: An abundant crop from spring until the first frost. Up to 200 flavorful, deep red, firm berries from a single plant. Will form a solid mat within the wide rows as they reach maturity.

USAGE: Fresh eating, jams and jellies, freezes well and baking.

PLANTING TIPS: Protect from severe winter cold and frost heaving by mulching with 3-4” of straw in late fall. Remove mulch in spring as temperatures moderate.

    Comments about American Meadows Strawberry Earliglow:

    Planted along with rhubarb and raspberries in perennial garden. Took hold well, of the 30 plants I put in, 28 grew and 2 died. All have put out runners and really spread, so those two were not missed.

    Some produced strawberries (I think we got about 1 cup total from the 28 plants) this year, though I was not expecting much and look forward to more next year.

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
