Alexandria Alpine Strawberry (100-120 Days)

Alpine strawberries are a treat when you are working away in the garden and their flavor is so much more delectable than standard strawberries. This variety doesn't take up much space with compact-sized plants that produce few runners. We have ours growing as a border in the herb garden or tuck a few plants into the corners and edges of the vegetable or flower garden. They will grow successfully in containers if ground space is hard to find. Day Neutral. Zones 3-8.

20 seeds 



Fragaria vesca
