Answer: Sequoia is an early producing June bearer, with medium-firm, large, very sweet berries. It's excellent for fresh eating and preserves but doesn't freeze well. Sequoia is grown chiefly in California, Oregon, Florida and the Gulf Coast regions. They are an excellent quality berry. As with all strawberry cultivars, provide full sunshine and rich, moist, well-draining soil. Fertilize carefully; too much nitrogen will result in much foliage, at the expense of blossoms and fruit. Use a 5-10-10 at the rate of 5 pounds per 100 feet of row after harvest. If you remove the runners, the berries will be larger. After all the fruit has been harvested, renew the plants by mowing to about 3 inches high. Mulch around the plants to help the soil retain moisture, and to suppress competing weeds. Enjoy your strawberries!
