This is my favorite strawberry I've grown so far. The fruits are juicy, sweet, fairly uniform in size and shape, and red and fleshy to the center. They are vigorous and make good runners. The flavor easily beat out the two ever-bearing varieties I tried - Seascape and Mara des Bois. Honeoye had a slight edge over the June-bearer Cavendish, which sometimes produced over-sized fruit with empty spaces and a lot of white inside. The only bad comment I have about Honeoye is the name.... how the heck is it pronounced! Every time I try to say it I look stupid, and when I write it I have to double check that I did it right.

This link is..... not very helpful, unfortunately.
