From Miller Nurseries about 'Sparkle'
Quote:
Sparkle has the advantage of escaping those nasty frost injuries. Usually fruits late June. Extends the fresh fruit season. The name really describes the berry, which is so bright it sparkles on the vine. Outstanding flavor, fresh, in preserves or frozen. Shipped spring only.

Why Virus-Free?

If you have suffered through poor quality crops of strawberries… and could see little wrong with the plants…chances are the problem was virus or fusarium wilt. We suggest never to replant runners or gift plants from friends. As commercial growers would tell you, you risk losing irreplaceable time and your labor. Re-plant fresh, virus-free stock every 3 or so years.
