Hood strawberry plant has large, bright, glossy red fruit turning dark when fully ripe. Fine, sweet flavor, excellent fruit quality. Excellent for preserves and jams, good for all other uses. Vigorous, very productive, erect plants make picking easy. Resistant to root rot and mildew; is susceptible to red stele but still performs better than Northwest on red stele-infested soil. Bears entire crop over a short period. Popular home market variety. Ripens in early June. Not particularly winter hardy.
