What are the pros? Great germination
What are the cons? none
I asked a local urban garden center what I could do to get strawberries the first season. After scratching their heads for a bit, they suggested starting them around the previous XMas. And so I started a few White Souls around November of last year, straight out of the packet, and then around ten each of White Soul, Red Wonder and Alexandria, in the freezer for a month and then germinated around Xmas.
Either way, the germination rate was around 90% . Those I put in the freezer all passed the others in size, within a month. They're starting to flower and it's time to re-pot. I've sewn 3 Root pouches (Smart Pots essentially) stacked one on top of each other with the bottoms cut out of the top 2, with pockets sewn into the sides. A 3 foot high Strawberry Pot made out of Root Pouches with room for 9 plants on the sides, and a few on the top.
After giving a White Soul away to a friend today, I've got 41 plants left. Looking forward to some strawberries this summer, fingers crossed.

What are the pros? Great flavor, Unique
What are the cons? Small fruit
I'm not sure why everyone perceives the strawberries flavor as Pineapple. I taste no pineapple what so ever. I seem to taste White Grapes.. a flavorful Grape tone.

What are the pros? Great taste when fully ripened
What are the cons? Hard to tell when ripened
I started these seeds indoor in march using a heated seedling mat. Near 100% germination. Transpkanted them in hanging fabric baskets. Grew lots and lots of leaves, no runner, but also lots and lots of flowers and fruits, even in the first year! Can't wait to see my production next year! A bit hard to tell when fully ripened. I usually give a little squeeze. If soft and really easy to pick, they're ready for me! Nice flowery, pineapple-y flavour. Small fruits, but soooo tasty! Do not keep for long in the fridge though. A great addition for the garden! :)

What are the pros? You can do this!
What are the cons? Don't know yet
Hello Nice People,
This is my favorite part of this website. Where I can read the reviews of real gardeners like me and I learn a lot! Today I get to contribute.
I read the previous reviews about getting these strawberry seeds to germinate and I have a suggestion for you that works terribly well for me whenever I try to germinate tiny little seeds. I ordered and received these seeds back in January and I sprinkled them liberally over a flat in late February in my greenhouse. I covered the flat loosely in plastic wrap to keep in the moisture. Don't make it too tight because all seeds and dirt still need to breath oxygen. I misted them daily and within about 2 weeks I believe I probably got 95-100% germination. It is June and they are growing like gangbusters. Will I get a ton of strawberries this year or will I have to wait for next year. Hard to say. But..... happy gardening everyone!

What are the pros? Great taste
What are the cons? Slow germination
I started these is January 2015. I planted the plants in both containers and in a raised bed and the seem to do better in the raised bed. On to the fruit I did get a small batch last summer, which was impressive. This year however, WOW, I am getting so much more and the fruit is much bigger. The taste is amazing kind of tropical, cross between strawberry pineapple or guava, or papaya. The fruit smells good too. The seeds do take a long time to germinate, that is the only reason for 4 stars. But worth it, if you are thinking of trying alpine strawberries try these. Best thing critters don't bother them.
