Strawberry Delizz

The first and only strawberry to win the prestigious All-American Selection Award. Loaded with outstanding qualities, Delizz Strawberries produce an abundance of plump fruit throughout the summer. Each sweet 1-1.5″ strawberry is packed with delicious flavor, perfect for jams, deserts, and snacking. The plants grow in a lovely, uniform, compact habit, making them ideal for flower gardens, containers, and hanging baskets.

Being a day-neutral strawberry, it produces fruits all season long, beginning in early summer, with fruiting continuing through August. Even hot weather won’t slow down the bumper crop of berries.

Delizz Strawberries can also be grown indoors in a sunny window and will yield tasty fruit up to four weeks. To encourage more fruiting, the strawberries should be harvested often.
