Most plantings will produce satisfactory crops when only one variety is included, but pollen from other varieties generally will result in increased yields, larger fruits, and earlier ripening.
A planting design in which a row of one variety is alternated with a row of another variety will encourage cross-pollination. Make sure there is good bee activity. A honeybee hive in the vicinity will provide consistently high yields and better berries.
