I have to say, I'm disappointed by Cavendish. I'm in Rhode Island and the berries grew fine, nice size/color/yield, but the FLAVOR was terrible. They were either sour or "watery"/mild and all berries had a strange bitter aftertaste! (I've never tasted that before in a strawberry.) I also grew Seascape and those are better. But I'm planning to take these out and replace with hopefully SWEET berries! Cavendish is not worth the effort!Thea
My second year plants have been pushing wonderful fruit out for the last couples weeks. Fantastic flavor..Mike G.
Large fruit, excellent sweet flavor, doing well in sandy Cape Cod soil. Much better quality than Sparkle.John P
Did good growing and producing a first crop. All be it a slightly milder taste and smaller when compared to strawberries like the Annapolis it did have a few issues in 2019. Growing area was Central Minnesota and I must say, although they produced fair enough for their first year, the berries had problems such as if a spot was on the wet dirt (2019 was our wettest year on record) it wouldn't redden up and would mush before turning red so make sure you plant them in well draining areas. Other then this, they made a good berry and the plants were very vigorous and seemed to do well surviving last winter.Wolfrum
These are by far the best strawberries that I have grown ! The berries were large , tastes great and the plants did not need any special care .Janet
I am planting a larger strawberry patch this year and plan to reorder this variety.
Cavendish did not ripen evenly in mid Missouri area,called nourse and talked to person that told me Cavendish plants do not do well in hot weather. Will not order again because we have a lot of hot spring weather.This information should be in description.john w
