What are the pros? Delicious

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

I'm back to say that these strawberries are delicious. No problems with wildlife discovering them either. We actually prefer the flavor of these over traditional red strawberries. They are the cutest little bushes and I've used them to line our rock wall. In our climate they stay green all year. Would highly, highly recommend!

What are the pros? different, fruit first year

What are the cons? musky taste

Review:

These were as easy to grow as other alpines I've tried, so as an ornamental, they're fine. But I won't be expanding the bed since I like the flavor of the red varieties much better. These are definitely pineapple-y, as advertised but there is a slight musky overtone I don't care for.

What are the pros? Delicious berries

What are the cons? Slower

Review:

I grew both White Soul and Yellow Wonder over the late winter/early spring in my unheated green house. I found the White Soul didn't germinate as well, and were slower to grow. Only about 25% of the seeds came to be adult plants. (See my review of YW to see my tips) But! They are still quite worthy of being grown. The plants are tiny, putting on little berries, even more delicate than YW. This was a worthy endeavor, and the picking has been quite fun.

What are the pros? Easiest plant I've grown

What are the cons? berries touch the ground

Review:

I'm just a beginner and these plants were very easy for me. I started them in a terra cotta pot last year and they had no issues (besides one hungry caterpillar). My only issue now is that it is outgrowing the pot it's in. They prefer shade; I have to keep them on the porch. I tasted a berry last year (even though you're not supposed to let them produce the first year) and it was unique. Light tropical sweet flavor. I tried to force it to go dormant this winter in the garage but it stayed green but perked up and grew even more when I put it out this spring. I would say this plant is extremely hardy and fascinates everyone who sees its white strawberries

What are the pros? easy to germinate

What are the cons? none

Review:

I put the packets in the freezer for 2 wks and then sprinkled half on a wet paper towel in a zip lock bag and half in individual pots to put out in the greenhouse. The seeds in the greenhouse took about 3 wks to germinate while the ones in the plastic bag sprouted within 1.5 weeks. I transferred the seeds on the paper towel into a container with seed starter soil. So far I have had awesome growth. Many have their third leaf and anything that goes wrong with them at this point is either my fault or nature. Really impressed with these seeds!
