- CommentsThis very large, gorgeous strawberry is not only impressive for its size, it also has wonderfully intense flavor and a nice, fresh fragrance. Its sweet perfume adds to the taste experience. It is sure to be a hit at local markets. Berries are so large, some as big as a small peach. Developed at Cornell University by Courtney Weber, Archer was bred to be cold hardy. Ripens early and berries maintain their large size through several harvests during the season. Enjoy a large harvest from this tough, productive strawberry, that also shows great disease resistance. Firm berries freeze well.
