Honeoye is a classic and dependable strawberry plant (more than 30 years!). A highly adaptable variety, this strawberry plant is grown in every state in the US, but does especially well in the north and can over-winter to zone 3.
The fruit is very large, dark, and flavorful. Not as sweet as Earliglow, but with a distinct and robust strawberry flavor that many prefer. Freezes well.
The plant is vigorous and high-yielding, with basic care.
Honeoye prefers a well-drained soil that is rich in all the basic nutrients, with a pH of 6–6.5. Honeoye strawberry plants have a shallow root system that can benefit from mulch (straw, pine needles, or plastic).
