Strawberries are of the rose plant family Rosaceae and genus Fragaria. There are over 20 different species and hundreds of varieties. In addition, there are three different "Types" of strawberries: June-Bearing, Ever-Bearing and Day-Neutral. The different types do require some different growing maintenance to achieve a good size crop in your home garden year after year.

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.
