Strawberry Varieties & Facts

Strawberries come in many different shapes, sizes, colours, textures, and tastes.

Early varieties: VEESTAR, ANNAPOLIS

Veestar : These strawberries are nice, plump, very sweet and red. They start large, and decrease in size. However, the smaller berries are so incredibly sweet! They take a little extra work, but make an awesome jam! These berries tend to be soft, making them ideal for jamming, pies, desserts, and eating. Because they are soft, they will not last in the refrigerator for any long period of time, and should be used up right away. We only sell Veestar as picked berries when they are large, because they will last a short while, but only harvest them as picked berries to sell upon request. These are excellent pick your own berries because, at times, they are so numerous in numbers that it may take a whole 5-10 minutes to fill a basket (depending on how many you eat)!!

Mid-Season: MIRA, MESABI, JEWEL, SAPPHIRE

Late Season: YAMASKA, ST. PIERRE

Other: We also have new varieties under test every year. Taste them and see which is your favorite.
