    I have a tree I have tentatively identified as Early Strawberry, based on information I found online. The fruit ripens in mid July. It will get dark red, but once it hits that stage, it over ripens in a matter of hours. I usually pick when they have just a blush of red for the best results. It makes absolutely marvelous applesauce, but is really not ideal for other uses since it cooks up too fast to hold its density in pies. I have found I can bake a crust, make my filling, and using a crumb topping, only bake long enough to brown the top and that makes a good pie. But fully baked, it seems more like applesauce pie. Does it sound like Early Strawberry?
