Plant Features

Cavendish is a high-yielding producer of large, juicy strawberries that are excellent for fresh eating, canning or freezing. This June bearing strawberry is the preferred choice for northern gardeners, due to its amazing winter resistance, and is the one we plant in our gardens. Offers excellent disease resistance.

Plant Care: Within a week post-harvest, mow or hand-trim plants to leave just 1-2 inches above the crowns. Clear away debris, fertilize, and ensure regular watering throughout summer.

Growing well !

The product arrived well packed and it starting to grow well in my yard. Let's see if the strawberries show up. I'm extremely satisfied. Thank you.

Cavendish Strawberry

I bought 50 Strawberry plants and they were bare roots. Which means they literally look like roots and a weed when you get them. They break apart easily. I soaked them for two hours before planting them. They have sprouted wonderfully and I haven't lost one plant yet. I'm excited about getting strawberries this fall!!

Great plants

Cavendish Strawberry plants arrived on time and all are live and healthy. They are in my sun room, waiting for this up and down mid-west weather to get warm enough for the plants to go into the soil!

So far so great

Planted them in a raised bed and put a mesh cover over them to keep my dogs from nibbling on them (an ongoing problem with 3 dogs!). They are all thriving and I'm excited to have strawberries for the first time in many years.
