      Extreme cold weather will slow down the strawberry ripening process. This will cause light harvest until temperatures return to normal. Cool weather does keep strawberries on the plant longer, allowing for natural sugars to develop. Fruit flavor and sweetness can enhance during cold weather events, making it even more enjoyable for consumers. Ever-bearers grow best where late summer weather is cool, not hot. Day-neutral: these strawberries bear fruit spring, summer, and fall–throughout the growing season as long as the temperature remains between 35°F and 85° They will even produce fruit in winter if temperatures do not drop below 35°F. Day-neutral strawberries were developed.

    These berries bear fruit all throughout the year, as long as the climate is good and temperatures are below 90º F. In places where the climate is mild you can guarantee growing strawberries all year round. However, if not, then you can expect to harvest your berries from late May until the frosts come if you live in the Northern Hemisphere.   Fill the freezer bags with measured quantities of mashed strawberries (preferably 2 cups). Flatten then and ensure that there is no air inside it before zip locking. Label them with date and amount of mashed strawberries inside.

Day-length sensitive, these varieties produce buds in the autumn, flowers, and fruits the following June, and runners during the long days of summer.

Although called “June-bearing” or “June-bearers,” these strawberries bear earlier than June in warmer climates. Most of the "Garden Strawberries" are of the species Fragaria x ananassa and include all three types. June-Bearing are mostly x ananassa species and the larger fruit bearing Ever-Bearing and Day-Neutral are also x ananassa species.

Most of the smaller fruit size varieties of Ever-Bearing types are of the Fragaria vesca species, which includes the Wild Strawberry and Alpine Strawberries. Because June-bearing strawberry plants produce a singular crop of strawberries in spring to early summer, late spring frosts can damage or kill the fruit.

If everbearing strawberry plants are hit by late frosts, it is not quite as devastating because they will produce more fruit throughout the growing season. June-bearing strawberries produce one big crop early in the growing season and that’s it, but everbearing strawberries produce sweet, red berries from early summer into fall.

The plants send out fewer runners than June-bearing varieties which allows the plant to use energy to produce multiple berry crops. In Zone 10 it is going to be difficult to grow strawberries in the summer/hot weather.

Most growers that far south use day-neutrals for off season production in late winter. You can try either a container for your strawberries, or a hanging basket. However, it might be hard to keep them alive.

Immediately transfer sugar-coated strawberries into Ziploc bags or other airtight containers. Label with contents and date and place in freezer. Picking your own strawberries is a dangerous game.

What starts out as good, clean fun plucking berries from their bush quickly escalates into a manic. Pack the strawberries into a freezer container, seal it and freeze.

Tips for freezing strawberries. There are some things you need to pay attention to when freezing strawberries: Harvest berries early in the morning to get peak flavour (this applies mostly when the weather is hot).

Make sure to harvest berries at their peak maturity. These delicious ruby-red ripe strawberries (Fragaria ananassa) are decidedly a summer fruit. They are hardy in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 5 through 9, says the North.

June-bearing varieties such as Allstar bear all at once, usually over a period of about 3 weeks. Although called June-bearing, these bear earlier than June in warm climates. Everbearing varieties like Quinault produce a big crop from spring flowers, set light flushes of fruit through summer, and then bloom and bear again in late summer and fall.

Remove the hulls with the knife, place the berries on the cookie sheet in a single layer, and put the baking sheet in the freezer for an hour or two.

Separate the strawberries into portions, fill the freezer bags or containers, and remove any air from them. Too much air. Strawberries are different in that you must remove the hulls (the green cap) after washing, but otherwise the same as other berries.

Soak the bare root strawberry plants for 20 minutes in a bucket of water. Tristar will give you berries virtually all summer, until frost. The summer crop will be lighter, but the spring and fall crops will both be full-size.

Tristar has wonderful color and flavor. Slice off the green tops and hull the strawberries so you preserve as much of the fruit as possible.

Leave very small strawberries whole and cut larger berries into halves or quarters. Spread the cleaned, whole or sliced strawberries in a single layer on a baking sheet or on plates. Place the fruit in the freezer, uncovered, for two hours. In order to keep bare-root strawberries alive just long enough to make it to their new homes, the nurseries will wrap the roots in moistened paper, put them in moisture-tight plastic bags, put them in their shipping boxes, and then store them in freezers below freezing.

The plants are then shipped so that the recipient will get them on a Friday. If you have primocane-fruiting erect blackberries, cut all canes off just above the ground in the late winter for the best fruit.

In the summer, when the primocanes are 3½ feet tall, removed the top 6 inches. The primocanes will branch, thereby producing larger yields in the fall.

Make sure to leave enough space in-between berries so they freeze individually.
