Why plant Jewel Strawberry?
Jewel Strawberries are one of the most commonly planted in commercial farming and homegrown farming for their disease-resistant and hardy personality. They bear deliciously plump red fruits in June, just in time to top your summer salads or lay out for a tan and find yourself snacking away right off the bush! Plant the joys of summer with a prolific grower, and stuffing your face with strawberry shortcake!
Strawberries are fascinating fruits because they are technically not actual berries and are members of the rose family. That's right; strawberries are a member of the rose family due to their sweet fragrance, similar to the lovely fragrance that roses give off. In terms of berries, true berries hold their seeds on the interior of their being. Strawberries are the opposite, proudly displaying their green-yellow seeds on the outside. Some botanists consider that each seed on a strawberry is its own separate fruit, talk about receiving a lot in a small package!
