(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.

Review:

This strawberry was very easy to grow. It has done very well and produced fruit the first summer. I vernalized the seeds in the freezer for about a month before planting and had near perfect germination. The berries are sweet and tasty. If you are looking for a good strawberry, this is a good one.

Best strawberry ever

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.

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!!!
