(Fragaria vesca) Deep scarlet, egg-shaped fruits weigh two to three grams each. Everbearer that yields the first season from an early planting. A very productive alpine sort, sweet and flavorful.

What are the pros? So tiny - a delight to nurture

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew these for joy, not yield. I started them indoors from seed in 2016. Grew some in a large flat container in full sun on my deck. Grew some in partial shade in a raised bed in an area about 2X3 feet. The plants in full sun were full and bushy. The shaded plants were less robust, but they had more berries by the end. The tiny delicate blooms were a joy to see even though we got few berries during the summer. In the fall, they took off, and there would be tiny bursts of flavor waiting for me every evening. I just ate them in the garden, but they would be delightful to top a salad or dessert. Pick them when they look "overripe" for good flavor. We didn't baby them - they look delicate, but they're tough. Not a good choice if you are short on garden space, but they might make a nice ground cover elsewhere. I'll report in later as to whether they overwintered well and if they bear earlier and heavier this year.

Review:

Seeds sprouted and grew very well. Bore fruit all summer, slowing down with the heat, but kept producing right up to the first frost! Excellent fruit.

What are the pros? perfect germination

What are the cons? none

Review:

I just love growing these as windowsill plants during the winter. It allows something young and green to grace the house. I sprout a new packet as often as I can, keeping young ones on my windowsill. They start off best in shallower pots that are bigger around; I favor perforated gallon ice-cream containers. I water the seed/lings with a tablespoon so as not to displace anybody. The new tender sprouts are so fragile. Extremely fertile seed with this variety, if I don't get %100 germination I know I'm doing something wrong! Looking forward to accumulating enough plants to fill rows and borders.

Review:

These are great, in started from seed inside in early february. Transplated 3 small plants into a planter in end of April. They are now huge and I'm harvesting small berries almost every day. If they arent totally ripe, they are bland. But let them get deep red and they are melt in your mouth sweet. Love these

What are the pros? Great taste

What are the cons? May taste very bad

Review:

Hello, i grew these strawberry variety. They taste great (just a little sweet and they have a very rich flavour) if well watered and if they get the right ammount of sun. They are very heat and drought resistant (survived 10 days at 40?C (104 f) without watering). If they lack the sun or if they don't get watered very regurlarly they will taste like cardboard. So dont't blame the variety if you lack the right growing conditions.Good luck!
