(Fragaria vesca) This variety was selected to produce elongated, red fruit that is sweet and aromatic. Perfect for growing in flower gardens and containers as the plants, flowers and berries are ornamental. So delicious the fruit won't last long!

Review:

These were SO EASY to start from seed, with one packet producing over 200 healthy plants. I started the seed in mid to late April in multiple 4-inch pots, then pricked them out into 72-cell flats in May. The plants grew a lot faster than I had anticipated and the beds I'm building for them aren't yet ready. The ones in a "holding area," still in those flats, are doing okay. But they don't have enough room, the soil isn't as good as it could be, and the spot really is too hot for them And yet, they're still doing okay. But those I potted into large pots (5 plants per 14-inch pots) are THRIVING. They're on the veranda where they're partially shaded, just as they would be in a woodland setting. The berries are incredibly sweet and flavourful. Absolutely DELICIOUS. They taste like strawberries with just a hint of something floral.

Review:

I grew these little guys on the windowsill of my office in December. By February I had a few tiny strawberries from the 10 plants that germinated (not sure how many seeds I started with). They overtook the small planters, so I put them in a patch in our landscaping. All summer long we had daily handfuls of the small berries. Now here it is November- cold and rainy- and they are more prolific than ever. The aren't incredibly fragrant, but they are sweet (with a hint of banana). They are not appropriate for anything other than picking and immediately eating, as they wilt even a couple of hours after picking. Even so, I think they are totally worth growing.

Review:

Strawberry seeds are photoblastic. You can put them on a wet paper towel, not in a folded one, and put the paper towel in a takeout container. Under a grow light, more than 75% of my seeds germinated after 3 days. I did not put it out because it is too hot here in the south. Also, before I sow the seeds, I put them in a freezer about a month for a cold treatment.

Review:

I was really disappointed at how few plants germinated from the seeds. Once they did germinate, they grew two leaves, and then stopped growing altogether. They did fairly well, until we forgot to water them for a while and most died. My husband dug up that last surviving one, so who know what might have happened in the second year. It was really disappointing how little they grew in the first year though.

Review:

I decided to grow these after going on a hike with cub scouts and seeing tiny wild strawberry plants in a wooded area in the park. I started these seeds 2 years ago in the ground. (I didn't start seeds inside that year due to having a newborn.) I got several small plants and while we got lots of flowers my toddler picked almost all of them. I think we had maybe 5 strawberries at the very end of the season but they were delicious. The second year we got quite a bit more fruit as I was more diligent in keeping someone from picking all the flowers. This is year 3 and we already have blooms on the plants that weathered both a really cold snowy and a mild winter now. I will actually be transferring the plants as well as the 8 more that are starting now to a bed with perennial herbs since I know they are going to make it a while. Also, the fruit seemed to get over ripe very easily. Like one day they would be green and 2 days later they would be over ripe and food for the bugs. Definitely need to check the plants daily.
