these turned out with beautiful plant with dozens of berrys per plant, super great taste ! I will rate it a big 10Susan Z.
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.Clay

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.Portia
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!Trisha A
