Earliglow

My field value: (Fairland x Midland x Redglow x Surecrop)--Many consider Earliglow berries to be the BEST FLAVORED of all the widely grown commercial varieties. It is the earliest producing, medium sized berry—with size decreasing greatly as the season progresses—making it difficult for u-pick farms to sell the later fruit. Even with its draw-backs, Earliglow is one of the most widely planted varieties in the Midwest and Northeast, largely due to its fantastic flavor!

Honeoye

Market: Fresh

Season: Early

Yield: Low/Medium

Fruit Size: Medium/Large

My field value: (Vibrant x Holiday) Fantastic Yielder! This berry is a large fruit with a beautiful red color. It is firm, red clear through and is great for pies. A good fresh shipper and very winter hardy. Currently, the most popular PYO variety in the Midwest and Northeast. It’s the leading producer in holding its size during the long harvest season. The Honeoye is best flavored when allowed to grow in lighter soils. Due to flavor considerations and lack of disease resistance, it is best to keep this variety on lighter soils or in raised beds.

Jewel

Fruit Size:

My field value: (Plant Patent #5897) (Senga Sengana x NY E4-58) Of the varieties in today's Strawberry Industry, Jewel appears to be the BEST ALL AROUND variety. Good for u-pick, fresh shipping and longer season yields. Produces large, firm, wedge-shaped fruit of excellent color and quality. Its firmness and abrasive resistant skin makes it less susceptible to fruit rots and ideal for shipping. A must for all serious growers!
