Strawberry Ostara

Strawberry Ostara

A ‘perpetual’ or ‘ever-bearing’ strawberry, Fragaria x ananassa Ostara produces white flowers and fruit in flushes from June until the frosts, instead of the one big crop of the summer-bearing strawberries. The berries are large, conical and bright red, red-fleshed with a sweet, juicy flavour and good fragrance, and total yields are high. Strawberry Ostara has a compact, slightly open habit which displays the fruit well among the mid-green, typical strawberry leaves. Peg down runners, one per plant, as they appear, discarding the rest lest you exhaust the plant; leave attached to the ‘mother’ plant until September, when they can be lifted and replanted in a new bed, or potted up in a greenhouse or polytunnel for an earlier crop next year. Each plant will produce well for about three years.
