What are the pros? Incredible Taste!!

What are the cons? Small Yield, Grow Time

Review:

These strawberries are so amazing tasting. They remind me of a freezie, yet so much better. It took me a second year for my first plantings to grow any strawberries, in the second year though many seeds grew fast and produced strawberries right away! Birds definitely enjoyed them so find yourself some netting. They produce a decent amount but they are small so they won't be a filling snack. More or less just a tasty teasing bite. I am up to six of these plants currently in a large home-made planter and they handle themselves pretty well. I find they go from wilting to brand new leaves very quickly, it is hard to gauge on how to keep them perfectly balanced. I also had some bug eating holes in the leaf (can't remember the name) so that was a bit of a thing to deal with. Anyway these were worth growing for the amazing taste, but expect to have tiny strawberries and that you may have to wait for proper growth!

What are the pros? Very simple to germinate

What are the cons? None

Review:

I got these seeds in a pre-packaged pot with soil. Through the instructions said they could take up to six weeks to germinate, they sprouted after six days on the kitchen windowsill. I am in a condo so I have transplanted the resulting plants into a ceramic strawberry pot. I am anxious to see if they will winter well and if I should move the pot indoors or into the garage for the winter. Our winters can drop to -25 celcius or -13 Fahrenheit.

What are the pros? Pretty, tasty

What are the cons? Not drought tolerant

Review:

I started these strawberries under lights and heat mat at the beginning of March. The germination rate was excellent and I soon had too many plants for my garden. Some I gave to friends and some I planted under a small peach tree where they thrived. The first fruits were not tasty but after that I there were beautiful tiny strawberries all summer through early November, a couple weeks past our first hard frost (5C). They did well with the abundant rain we had in 2018 but during dry spells needed extra water or they curled up. Great groundcover for an edible landscape!

Review:

Easy to grow, mine are on year three and a 4x4 patch produces about a quart a year if you save them in the freezer until you have enough to use... but it is hard to save them... I think I eat most as they come off the plant! Mine are in full sun and beyond keeping them watered and pulled a few weeds(they crowd out many weeds!) I haven't done anything to them! Didn't cover them last winter and it got down to -20f! They came back great and thick this year. After next year I am going to have to divide them into another spot...

What are the pros? Beauti Plant, yummy fruit

What are the cons? The mice like them too much

Review:

I started these from seed in early March using a heat pad and grow light. They sprouted quickly and most of them remained very small until I planted them outside in May. They grew easily in the ground and have created a nice ground over under a peach tree. Like other alpine strawberries, the fruit is a bit dry and seedy but the flavor is very good. Reminds me of a fruit roll-up. The only bad thing is that rodents like to eat them so I have to pick them slightly underripe. They would do well in a pot, I think.
