Strawberries


Anonymous added on June 16, 2017 | Answered

We have a June bearing strawberry and an ever bearing strawberry raised bed. This is the beginning of the third season for these plants. The plants themselves look healthy however about 50% of the strawberries are not forming correctly. They are an odd acorn shape and all of the seeds are on the bottom tip of the berry. Any help would be appreciated.
