ALPINE STRAWBERRY RED Fragaria vesca
Alpine strawberries are larger than wild strawberries, though still have the natural characteristic and nutrition of the original natural strawberries, and remain unaltered by hydridization! Fruit are extremely sweet, are produced early in the season, and are continually produced for many weeks. Plants are easy to grow, and are very tolerant of drought and poor soils. Ideally plants can be placed in a sunny location, though these are probably the most -tolerant of strawberries, and will produce fruit in a partly d location. Strawberries make excellent potted plants, and are also one of the few fruits that can be grown as houseplants! Plant at any time of year, and place in a sunny window.
Type: Very hardy perennial
Hardiness zones: 3-10
Seeds per pack: 20
Germination: This plant is easy to germinate. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. For best results, obtain a sterile seed-start mix, and place the seeds just under the surface of the pre-moistened growing medium. Lightly press the surface flat, and keep moist until germination. Watering can be done from the top with a spray bottle, or from the bottom tray, as to not disturb the seeds.
