Jewel strawberry plants were developed at Cornell University by botanists who wanted a quality berry that was simultaneously large, sweet and attractive. They succeeded!
The berries are large, glossy, tasty, and beautiful, with bruise-resistant flesh that hold up well after picking.
The plants are vigorous and disease-resistant and offer heavy fruit production.
This combination of qualities makes Jewel the industry standard for mid-season strawberry production.
Excellent for eating fresh eating, canning and preserving. Freezes well. Ideal for growing in zones 4-8. A must-have strawberry plant to center your season around. Larger than Earliglow. Comparable to Flavorfest and Cavendish.
