Our Strawberry Varieties

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

Kent
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).

Seascape
A large, firm, sweet berry that produces from mid-August until a hard frost, usually late September. Seascape berries belong to the "day neutral" family.

Tristar
A smaller, firm, intensely flavored berry that produces from mid-August until a hard frost, usually late September. Like Seascape berries, Tristars are classed as "day neutrals."
