“June Bearers” and “Ever-bearers” in strawberries – what’s it all about?

June Bearers – so called because June is when they produce in the Northern Hemisphere if planted in spring.  This type of strawberry predominately produces in summer months (usually 60 days after planting in spring) – this can be manipulated by keeping young plants frozen until you want them; and you can plant out in stages for production every 60 days, producing one big crop in summer then needs to be replaced with  new plants.
Ever-bearers – or continuous bearing strawberries and  they keep steady production going – they don’t produce one massive crop or need to be replaced like June Bearers after cropping.
Most growers have a combination of both types of strawberries.
