YELLOW ALPINE STRAWBERRY 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 hybridization! Fruit are extremely sweet, are produced early in the season, and are continually produced for many weeks. Unlike Red Alpine Strawberries, the yellow variety is ripe when it reaches a soft yellow (begins white), and has all of the softness and sweetness inside. 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, and also indoors in a sunny window! 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
Seeds per pack: 10
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. Seeds can take 20 to 35 days to germinate.
