Strawberry Plants - Jewel
(Fragaria ananassa 'Jewel') Perennial. Zone 4. Mid-Late Season.
What a lovely berry! Jewel is oh so sweet, very juicy, a little on the softer side. Plants produce tons of vines all Spring and bear an abundance of large berries in mid-late Summer.
The Jewel Strawberry is susceptible to Red Stele disease.
Red Stele Disease, also know as Lanarkshire Disease, is a fungal disease that affects strawberry plants. It can be brought about when strawberries are grown in heavy, saturated clay soils and when conditions are particularly wet and cool. In order to deter this disease, please plant your strawberry plants in well draining soil, in areas where water does not pool.
