There are a multitude of strawberry varietals, and a great deal of research has gone into breeding a better strawberry. At Stevens Strawberies, we've chosen three varieties to maximize our local growing season and conditions. If this is of interest to you, you'll find more detailed information at strawberryplants.org
A soft, very sweet berry that produces from mid-July to early August. Kent berries are classed as a "short day variety" (commonly referred to as June-bearing, but here in central Alberta they ripen in July).
