Climbing and non-climbing strawberries
There are in fact over 600 varieties of strawberry plant - and it's not always easy to know the best type for your garden.
- non-climbing varieties produce a large volume of fruit once a year
- climbing varieties produce fruit twice a year in a more staggered pattern
These plants only flower once a year. Depending on the variety, fruiting can take place from mid-May (very early varieties) to mid-August (latest varieties).
Generally, the fruit is large and abundant in quantity - excellent for use in cakes and jams.
These varieties produce fruit twice a year, first around July and then sometime between August and the first frost of winter.
The fruit is generally medium-sized and appears more gradually compared to the non-climbing varieties. Very common in kitchen gardens, climbing strawberries are very popular.
