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.

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.

Zone 9

I ordered and planted 25 bare root plants and not one plant produced as much as a leave. I am a very proficient gardener and have grown strawberries for many years.

Zone 10

22 of the 25 plants died within the first month. We had enriched the soil beforehand. I believe the plot is too wet and shaded. May not be related to the plants.

Novice gardener here in zone 3 (yes....northern Minnesota..40 below!). 100 % success with these plants from Nourse in raised beds. Follow their excellent directions on their website and you will have great success. Mulch with weed-free straw over winter. And “yes”...they are delicious
