Answer: Strawberry plants thrive in the sun but yours may need a little time to acclimate to your garden. Wait for new leaves to develop. If they turn crispy, too, you may need to move the plants to a site that gets a little shade from the late afternoon desert sunshine. Or, you might be able to build a fence or put in a trellis that will cast some afternoon shade on your plants. Best wishes with your strawberries.
