What are the pros? Amazing taste, pest resistant
What are the cons? Slow growing, low germination
I planted these two springs ago and its taken a while but they've become my favorite plant. They are super tasty, fun for kids to pick and for some reason the local animals leave them alone. My red strawberry plants were completely destroyed by squirrels/birds but these don't seem to attract the same attention. I had never grown strawberries from seed so I probably made some mistakes, direct sowed into a bed in spring. I'd say less than half germinated but the several plants that made it have been super happy and beginning to take over the bed. Have yet to see runners, but I'm hoping the plants multiply. These are apparently everbearing as I've had strawberries all season past the first frost.
Overall they are super unique, happy little low maintenance plants with delicious but small fruit.
