Mae Strawberry Plants - Early Season

Description of Mae Plants & Fruit:
A great compliment to the other popular early season plants, Honeoye or Rosie, Mae strawberry bushes have a larger crop size.
The fruit quality is good, although they are best eaten fresh - you will get better jam from the other varieties.
Note that it is not disease resistant and may not be suitable for organic growing in some areas.
