I purchased a few alpine strawberry plants at the Friends School Plant Sale this year and they have far exceed my expectations. I cannot recommend growing these berries enough! Alpine strawberries look different than traditional strawberries, which initially turned me off but I am so glad that I gave them a shot because they taste much sweeter and the harvests are impressive. The fragrance and taste of these berries surpass any traditional strawberry, even homegrown. I’ve posted a picture above of today’s harvest. I have been getting about this amount daily from four plants since early summer! They just keep producing tasty fruit nonstop! So far, I have had no pest problems and they have thrived during the hot and cool times. They also do not seem to require a lot of water.
Definitely consider planting alpine strawberries next year in your garden or even on a container outside. To read more on the variety, click here.
