Pretty much DOAThis was my first-ever purchase of bare root plants and it will be my last. Plants arrived as scheduled but when I unpacked them I found that they were in leaf and smelled strongly of mold. Some were black. They went right into the trash. I've had good luck with Burpee seeds since I was a kid, but these bare root plants were a disappointing waste of money.

Plants are somewhat sensitive, but prolificOrdered 25 plants for spring 2014, and not a single casualty - no hassle, easy planting. One star!
Plants seem hardy; they have survived soil that is close to a black walnut tree that kills everything else. Another star!
Runners like CRAZY. I was hoping the number of my plants would double - what a laugh. Saying they tripled is a conservative estimate. Next year, it's going to be tough to fit them all in the garden. Two more stars!
And then there's the berries themselves. We let them produce at first, but the berries (although they had great taste) grew smaller and smaller as the season progressed. My belief is that the plants are overtaxing themselves by trying to produce just after dealing with transplant shock. We ended up pinching off the rest of the blossoms to give the plants time to store up energy for next year.
Bottom line: hardy, prolific, but a little sensitive to transplanting. Four stars, and high, HIGH hopes for next spring.

Poor yield, tiny fruit only in the spring!I don't know what the secret is to growing strawberries. I spaced the baby plants I received carefully in pots full of rich, well composted soil, and watered them every other day and used mulch to keep them well-hydrated, but only saw a few strawberries bigger than a dime! The rest were stunted and never matured, and the plants stopped flowering after this lousy crop was gone and stopped producing fruit. Now all there is are pots full of sparsely leafed plants. What a total disappointment!

GREAT taste, prolific plantsWOW! i bought these plants thinking maybe they would give me some strawberries. Instead, they have given me basketfuls of bright red, tasty, extremely sweet and plump little tasty treats. Writing this review is making my mouth water as i think of how wonderful these things taste! I planted them last growing season, got a medium amount of berries, and this year they have come back, after producing shoots that made over 20 new little plants! The little sprouts came up, and grew into foot tall bushes filled with over 30 flowers each! No pests will touch them, and they produce in massive yields that i can barely keep up with harvesting! I cant wait to see what they will do next year...

Earligow is exciting!What a great strawberry! The juicy sweet berries are just the ticket for early summer shortcakes and preserves! You won't go wrong with this one! The fruit is very firm and ripens to a succulent rich red.
