(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.

Best strawberry ever
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Taste and production.

What are the cons? small harvest window

Review:

I started seeds late January, two years ago. Germination was great, but seemed to take a long time to grow much. Once they started, they really grew though. Last year, ten plants produced six quarts, not including what was eaten while harvesting. They must be allowed to fully ripen and picked immediately. Too early and the flavor is bland, too late and the berries are mush, but timed just right, they are the sweetest, richest strawberry flavor you will ever experience. I have already harvested a pint this year and the plants are loaded with flowers and ripening berries. Strawberry jam made from these beauties is something truly special.

Tiny but explosive flavor

What are the pros? Great flavor, healthy plants

What are the cons? Slow to flower for me

Review:

I've never grown strawberries before and actually didn't research what an alpine strawberry was before I started these. I wasn't expecting the fruits (which took moooonths to get out of the tiny, slow growing plants) to be so tiny, and I was a little disappointed... then I tried one! While, OK, I'll probably never have enough to make a pie with even with 10 plants going, these make such a good little snack when I'm out pulling weeds that I don't complain anymore. Super sweet little fruits, highly aromatic, slight taste of bubblegum if you look for it. Love these little guys! I just wish they grew a little faster and put out a little more fruit, but that may be my growing technique or my climate, so take that with a grain of salt.

Not much yield
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? Got berries the first year

What are the cons? Had to have 2nd packet sent.

Review:

Took awhile to germinate for first packet of berries. Only 2 plants made it. I called and Baker & they sent me another packet. That did it. Grew in a container on deck. Probably got 24 strawberries throughout the summer. Hoping for more this year!!!

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.
