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!

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!
