Yellow Wonder Alpine Strawberry

Also called Fraises des Bois, tasty Alpine Strawberries are miniature cousins of the regular Strawberry. Easier to grow and often considered to be sweeter than regular varieties, they reproduce and spread by seed rather than by runners. Alpine Strawberries perpetually bear fruit through a good part of the summer as long as they are watered regularly in times of low rainfall and protected from furry and feathered sweet-toothed thieves. Only growing 6" to 8" tall, they can be used as a border plant or as an edible ground cover. Taste-test to determine ripeness so that you can familiarize yourself with the optimum harvest moment. The fact that these delicious gems do not store well will never be a problem since they are usually gobbled up immediately. This glowing whitish-yellow berry does not attract birds. Some say that Yellow Wonder is even better than the Red! Hardy perennial. Hardiness zones: 5-9. (OP.)

Who among us does not adore Strawberries? We remember warm summer afternoons, hiking through summer fields and gathering wild Strawberries as children (and trying not to eat them all before we got home). Now, with a bit of patience, you can grow this precious berry from seed in your own garden! Best used in desserts, salad or fresh out of the garden and popped in your mouth, Strawberries may also be frozen for later use in sauces, tarts or pies and canned in jams, jellies and compotes. To get a little crop the first year, start Strawberries 16 weeks before the last spring frost date and raise as transplants.

Average seed life: 1 to 2 years.
