Yambu was released by Fresh Forward in the Netherlands and bred by Burt Meulenbroek. Yambu is an early mid-season variety, ripening similar season to Honeoye, one of its parents. Plants are very vigorous with dark green color and we have not experienced foliage disease pressure to this point. Yambu has no special nutrient requirements. Fruits are bright red color, attractive, with uniform shape and glossy skin. Yambu fruits for a long season and has shown to be very productive. 

The flavor is excellent with a very sweet taste. We selected Yambu from our variety trials after testing it for two years. We fruited a block of Yambu in 2017 and experienced continued success. We sent a grower survey to growers who also fruited Yambu in 2017 and they reported back very positive results on its performance. Growers indicated that they would plant it again. We highly recommend Yambu be planted when good plant vigor and excellent flavor is required!

Ordered due to plant vigor, was not disappointed. Planted in a 6" raised bed with a soaker hose, mulched with straw. Incredibly vigorous growth, large lush green leaves created a relatively full canopy, virtually no red stele. Berries had a very heavy set in the first year, yield was incredible. Primary advantage was uniformly shaped and sized berries, berries were generally 1.5" in diameter with a consistent pointed shape. Flavor was tested side by side with Jewel and no appreciable difference was noticed.

Western Ohio here.
We plant on plasticulture every year and have grown many different varieties in 9 years of commercial production. Yambu is possibly the best strawberry plant we currently have!! Plants grow large, beautiful berries for a long picking season. Flavor was pretty good, but we added just a little potassium in our fertigation (drip line) to boost the flavor and WOW, the flavor improved greatly!!! Yambu is gunning for the crown of "favorite plant" at our operation and is definitely going to be a staple for us in the coming years!

These strawberries are HORRIBLE! They have NO taste! They are pretty so I moved the Rutgers Scarlets which are tasty out of my circle and put Yambu in the middle of my circle of plants just for looks. Yambu is a good LOOKING strawberry:-) It is held high on the stem and off the ground like Malwina. I did not see any runners thank goodness. These strawberries are SO bad that Nourse should expedite them back to the Netherlands. The Netherlands should be ashamed at passing off such a tasteless strawberry on us Americans. I am SURE they have some good strawberries in the Netherlands BUT Yambu ain't it! Stores should stock these pretty red berries in windows to stimulate people's appetites. These strawberries are a beautiful deep red color but that's where their beauty ends. I love my early everbearing strawberries. They make LOTS of runners so I'll never be without the GOOD strawberries.

I chose Yambu berry plants after reading the description. The plants arrived in wonderful condition with huge root systems. I refrained from trimming the roots and planted them as instructed. Their growth took off and I diligently used a soaker hose on them through our drought ridden summer here in SW MO. All plants are thriving and are upright and beautiful. I have my bales of clean straw waiting for the cold days of fall. Delighted with Nourse Farms and quality of plants. Plan a new strawberry bed with their berries next year!
