  • Posted by molanic (IL - Zone 5b) on Feb 7, 2017 12:54 PM concerning plant:
    One year I got three new varieties of strawberries to try at once: Seascape, Mara des Bois , and Honeoye. After a couple of years I kept Honeoye and removed the other two. Seascape is not June bearing, so I wasn't expecting large numbers of berries, just small amounts throughout the season. But, the plants were not very vigorous and the fruit was quite small, round, and not very appetizing looking. The flavor was bland without much sweetness and juiciness. They were well reviewed by others, but perhaps these just don't perform well in my climate or soil. I have also read that the June-bearers like Honeoye just have better flavor in general, so maybe that is why I didn't like the other two.
