Fort Laramie Organic Strawberry
Quart Size 4-plant pack
Released 43 years ago by the USDA station in Cheyenne, WY, this near-heirloom strawberry has kept its place in the ranks of newer cultivars due to its cold-hardiness and ability to produce fruit in very tough environments.
Fort Laramie produces medium to large berries (larger with good fertility) with a bright-scarlet color, very sweet, showing exceptional resistance to fruit rots here at our farm in Indiana (performing better than Ozark Beauty).
Fort Laramie bears a large, early crop just before or with our first June-bearing types; with another crop in late summer. Berries on older plants are also produced sporadically through the summer, especially if runners are kept pruned (the spring runners on a 2 year plant will actually fruit in the summer, though the berries are on the small side for that crop). This is a very rugged cultivar, hardy to zone 3 and the cooler areas of zone 8. Originally bred with the mountain west in mind, Fort Laramie has done reliably well across the U.S., and continues to enjoy popularity for the ease of its growth and the production of quality strawberries under adverse conditions.
