Yellow Strawberry

3 reviews

This yellow version of fragaria provides berries that are even sweeter than the reds. Another plus is that birds are not attracted to their yellow fruits. Plants are 8" to 10" tall and very hardy providing an attractive, edible border from late June until a frost. An everbearing, fruits are a creamy yellow, some approach an inch in length. Strawberry plants should be cold-treated before planting.

What a deal!

Why pay $5 per plant at the nursery when you can grow a lot of these for next to nothing? Sweet, reliable, and birds don't seem to notice they're there so you actually get to eat them.

Extremely Sweet!

I grew these and Alpine White. "Yellow Strawberry" is a deceptive name, they look exactly like the white! BUT they are much sweeter than the white and have fruited more prolifically for me with the berries getting bigger as the season progresses. I didn't grow many, so none ever made it back into the house, too delicious!!!

Very decorative!

I was amazed at how quickly these turned from tiny delicate seedlings into big robust 8-10" plants. I started them in February and they bloomed and fruited all summer. Even now that day time temps are in the low 40s, they still look great. Excellent ground cover for under my large burning bush shrubs, and the berries are a nice bonus.
