Year-Long Sweet Strawberries
Imagine eating homegrown fresh fruit in the winter. It is possible if you grow hydroponic strawberries. Using hydroponics you
can grow many fruits including strawberries year round inside your home or a greenhouse without soil. The result is fresh, nutritious homegrown
fruit at any time of the year.
There are many reasons to use hydroponics for growing fruit. The controlled environment allows you to reduce the stress of
nutrient absorption and temperature fluctuations. This produces a higher quality of fruit.
Pest control is easier as most hydroponic gardens are inside your home or in a greenhouse. If problems arise, you can deal with
it quickly. Unlike store bought fruit, you will know how the fruit was grown, picked and handled.
There are three types of strawberry plants. The most common is the early summer type called the June Bearing. A newer variety
called the Everbearing produces fruit all summer long. The Day-neutral variety produces fruit slowly but consistently from late spring through
There are many delicious varieties of everbearing strawberries.
Day neutral strawberries produce fruit throughout the regular growing season.
The June-bearing strawberries require a longer time to produce fruit. They only
produce fruit once a year if grown in a conventional garden. However, when growing June-bearing hydroponic strawberries you control the
temperature, light and nutrients allowing them to produce year round.
Hydroponic strawberries are easy to grow. By replanting the runners, you can provide yourself with fresh berries year round. Just imagine how many new recipes you can try when you have strawberries available whenever you want them.
