Sparkle June-bearing StrawberryMid-Late. Fairfax x Aberdeen. New Jersey Ag Exp Stn, 1942.
Although not a favorite with commercial growers because of moderate crop size and smaller berries, we’ve yet to taste a strawberry that comes even remotely close to Sparkle. They possess a flavor that can only be described as the essence of strawberry. The best in an early year, the best in a late year, the best this year, last year, every year.
Soft berries make delicious fresh eating and are also excellent for jams and freezing. One of its few drawbacks is that it tends to lose color in the freezer. First fruit set is large; the rest are small.
Resistant to most strains of red stele. Blooms late, rarely affected by spring frost. Z3. (virus-free bare-root stock)
