Latin name: Fragaria ananassa
The USDA picked this name because the horticulturists decided it was the most descriptive of this high-yielding berry. Experts say you'll be more sure of a good yield from surecrop than any other June-bearing strawberry. The berries redden all the way through, with a rich but sweet flavor. The fruit holds well both on the vines and after picking. Ideal canner. Average yield of one quart per plant. Self-pollinating. Light to even sandy soil with good drainage is required. Neutral to slightly acidic is best.
