cultivars produce canes that are biennial in habit, growing one year and
producing the next. Everbearing (fall-bearing) cultivars produce canes that
bear fruit on the top portion of the current seasonís growth in late summer and
fall (usually late August to early October). If you leave these canes for next
year, they will bear fruit on the portions that did not fruit the previous fall.
Therefore this type can produce fruit in both June-July on the base of last
yearís cane and late summer/early fall on top of current seasonís cane. The
earlier crop is usually small.
