2 thoughts on “Deformed strawberries are often a result of poor pollination

  • Glenda Guest

    Some of my just starting to fruit strawbs look like the above pic. They are all new plants, purchased from a nursery. No pests that I can see, and about 8 0f the 12 plants seem to have normal fruit. Can you suggest something I can do to help these little non performers.
    Many thanks – Glenda Guest

      Hi Glenda,

      This “deformity” in strawberries is usually caused by poor pollination. Planting plenty of flowering plants to attract pollinators such as bees and other beneficial insects should help remedy it.

      Good Luck and Happy Gardening!
