Attention:We are getting alot of calls asking how to tell if plants have sustained winter damage. An easy quick test is to cut some of the canes/branches and put them in water and keep them in a warm area. If the buds break dormancy and leaves sprout then you know the canes are still alive. However this does not mean that the fruit buds survived! You can check out a video here on how to dissect a fruit bud to assess damage. It is VERY important to cut down middle of the bud to assess damage.
Strawberry plants typically handle the cold temperatures better than other plants because they should be covered with straw and snow. However if you want to check for winter damage you can dig up a few crowns and slice them open with a razor knife. A healthy crown will be creamy white while a damaged crown will be brown. If your crowns are mostly white with some brown streaks this indicates some winter damage but you should still get fruit.
