About this Variety
The idea of having a steady supply of berries by growing your own from a bed of strawberry plants is tempting and, fortunately, as easy as pie. Pineberries are relatively new and are gaining in popularity in farmers' markets and speciality food stores. Pineberries are considered a strawberry cultivar and are grown for their unique taste. They are NOT genetically modified. Pineberries and Strawberry Quinault are both everbearing varieties. The plants are vigorous and send out many runners. The Pineberries bear white fruit, speckled with red seed. Nice aroma with a mild pineapple flavor.

Plant strawberry roots in the spring after the danger of frost has passed. Before planting, remove the rubberband and rinse the roots. Gently separate roots before planting. To plant: Find a full sun location that receive 6+ hours of direct sun per day. Dig a hole 2-3" deep. Plant strawberry roots in a sunny location. Space the strawberry roots 12-24" apart in fertile, well draining soil. Plant with the crown at soil level.
Garden planting: Plant 12-24" apart with rows spaced 12-24" apart. Plant early spring so plants can get established before the hot weather. Do not cover the crown of the root. They love the sun so consider that when choosing a location to plant. Best to plant on cloudy days so the plants do not wilt before you can water them. We know it can be hard, but you will want to pinch the blossoms and the plant runners the first year to ensure the plants will develop a good system the first year.
