Veestar June-bearing Strawberry is a hardy, early-season strawberry variety. The berries are large, firm, medium red, and have an excellent flavour. A great all round variety, it is good for freezing and processing, for making jams, but also tastes great fresh.
Beneficial for pollinators like local bees. Keep in full sun and moist to increase fruit yield but do not over water.
