AC Wendy was developed by the Kentville Research Station in Nova Scotia. The strawberry is wedge-shaped to conic, with firm, bright red colored flesh. Wendy has an excellent, fresh flavor. Plants are vigorous and runner well. They are moderately resistant to powdery mildew and red stele, but susceptible to vertcillium wilt. Frost damage potential, as it is very early flowering. Trials showed Wendy to be highly productive, of good quality, and it held its fruit size throughout the season. We highly recommend this variety. Many of our customers report Wendy as being a consistent performer.

Highly recommend!
I bought 25 of AC Wendy and 25 of another variety. The other Variety all died out over a harsh winter and drought. AC Wendy THRIVED! I replanted runners this spring and almost had enough to fill the voids from the other variety that died off.
1st year planted we got to enjoy a few berries.
2nd year enjoy much much more!
Can’t wait to see third year crop next year!
Enjoying the growing strawberry bed with a new set of runners.

All 25 plants survived and have done so vigorously! Most have blossomed but since they were planted this spring I’m picking off the blossoms to encourage root development! They are great plants!

A "new" farmer in New Hampshire, in my first year of "due diligence" where I try to keep my mistakes small, to explore things before, perhaps, doing something big, as I learn the land here. I "only" bought 500 AC Wendys (besides 575 everbearings). Plasticulture, drip irrigation. My only worry so far is that these seem to be TOO vigorous. Three long rows of smiling flowers, several in each plant, greet me every day, in early June, the first year of June-bearings? I am supposed to remove those flowers, it appears? That's going to be some work! Done happily, I guess, because, if they are so vigorous at one-month-old, imagine what it will be when they are fully established!

1st year review: I planted 100 plants and all survived. All are thriving.
Great looking plants. Berries are good sized and taste great. Looking forward to years of good strawberries. Wishing I had planted them a few years ago.

2nd year on these and I just had to write a review. Every plant survived and have now at least doubled with the amount of sisters. I had a few berries the first year which was a bit of a surprise, but this year I am getting more berries than I know what to do with. They are big and very good tasting. My only issue is keeping the chipmunks away from them.

Taking a chance with growing in zone 9 (west coast central Florida), but the bare root plants (all 25) are growing well, very well. I don't know how they will fare the summer heat, but zones north of here have 95 degree summers too. If anyone has any advice, please email me as to a more suitable variety in my zone. First time grower of strawberries and AC Wendy variety sounded so good that I had to try it.
