The Story

Strawberries are fascinating fruits because they are technically not actual berries and are members of the rose family. That's right; strawberries are a member of the rose family due to their sweet fragrance, similar to the lovely fragrance that roses give off. In terms of berries, true berries hold their seeds on the interior of their being. Strawberries are the opposite, proudly displaying their green-yellow seeds on the outside. Some botanists consider that each seed on a strawberry is its own separate fruit, talk about receiving a lot in a small package!

The Details

This berry is ready for the runway! Jewel Strawberry is as precious as its name suggests with its bright red, shiny berries that are gorgeous. The sweet aroma from these fresh, ripe strawberries will make your mouth water and liven up your garden. Each berry has a delectable flavor that will have you picking all the fresh berries from the bush. If any make it into the house, these strawberries are great for freezing for a later date.

How to Grow

Strawberries thrive best in soil rich in organic material, fertile, and well-draining but average in moisture. Keeping the soil moist is key to ensuring that the berry harvest is plentiful and full of plump berries. Don't hide them from the sun; strawberries enjoy uninterrupted sun on their faces. Jewel is self-pollinating, allowing you to plant as little or as many as you would desire.
