Tennessee Beauty Organic Heirloom Strawberry
Quart Size 4-plant pack
From Tennessee in 1949 by Dr. E.M. Henry, Beauty is still around for home gardeners due to its reliability and flavor. This heirloom cultivar has a longer picking season (something that caused it to lose popularity in commercial harvesting) and very good resistance to strawberry viruses. The berry size is large, with a high cap (easy to pop off for freezing and canning), deep red color, and very sweet. Towards the end of the picking season, berry size drops to medium, but flavor and taste remain the same. Large berries make up 70% of the total crop. Good fertility and irrigation during dry spells (esp. during the summer when it is initiating flower buds for next years crop) keeps yield high for Tennessee Beauty. This strawberry was bred with the lower Midwest springs in mind: wet, humid, and stormy. Does well in all the Southern states, as well as Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Missouri, the lower New England states, Oklahoma, and Texas (these two states pay extra attention to irrigation). Can be grown in zone 4 with extra winter protection.
