Strawberry 'Sparkle'

I ordered Earliglow, but received Sparkle. Descriptions below.

Sparkle: A favorite for years, this variety is thought of as the best for jams and freezing. Flavor and quality are excellent. It does tend to overgrow itself, so you must thin it ruthlessly. Highly recommended for home gardens or roadside stands in northern climates. Grows best in zones 3-8.

Earliglow: Exceptional flavor, vigorous growth and earliness are the hallmarks of this variety. In commercial plantings, it is not as heavy a yielder as some, but an excellent choice for the home gardener. Excellent frozen due to sweetness. Good resistance to red stele and intermediate resistance to verticillium wilt. Grows best in zones 4-8.
