Description / Park's Whopper Strawberry

Park's Whopper Strawberry is a favorite across the U.S. and Canada for its superb adaptability and tough performance in the face of adversity. This June-bearer boasts unrivalled winter hardiness, thriving even in the upper limits of zone 3. And you'll just love the flavor of these plump, bright red, juicy berries.

Park's Whopper is a heavy-bearing strawberry, easy to grow and very productive. It blooms in mid to late spring, with handsome ½ inch flowers, and then sets a big crop of ultra-sweet, tender fruit. Expect to harvest 1 to 3 pints from every plant.

Like most strawberries, Park's Whopper spreads by runners, reaching just about 6 inches high but spreading more than a foot wide. Space plants 12 inches apart for dense coverage.

This is the strawberry to grow if you have uncooperative soil or unpredictable weather. It is a classic that has been tried and found superior in garden after garden, season after season. Among the best fruit crops for the home gardener, it proudly bears the Park's Whopper name.

Your order will include 20 young bare root plant starts.

A beautiful Surprise
Review by Nancy
My birthday was complete, you don't find store bought berries like these! I thank you and my son for this! He gave me the plants with blooms and no berries! The combo of his own compost and recommended fertilizer gave me berries long after my birthday...early summer and these were first year plants!

Much smaller than depicted
Review by L
The berries were much smaller than depicted. While the plant thrived overall, it produced extremely small berries. They were nothing like the picture depicts. The ripe berries smell was intoxicating, but the taste didn't live up to the scent. So far, they are overwintering well, so hopefully, the year's maturity will also improve the size and taste for the 2022 growing season.
