White Strawberry, Fragaria vesca, White Soul, Alpine . . .
Little is known about this Alpine Strawberry from South American that has recently been snatched back from the very brink of extinction. It is White with Scarlet Red Pips and remarkably beautiful. Unlike its cousin, the Red Strawberry, it has an amazing sweet fragrance and flavor similar to a very mild Pineapple and is sweetly delicious. This wild plant has now been rescued and is also being grown and promoted under another name ‘Pineberry’.
These hardy Perennials provide fresh Strawberries in small spaces and are very strong growers and top producers with on-going blooms and delicious fruits. They are Vigorous and Runner-less producing heavy crops all season. White Soul Strawberries have been around for only a few years and unlike the Fragaria Vesca Baron variety, the fruit is among the largest White fruit produced by alpines.
The fruits are disease resistant and bird-proof. For some reason, the birds do not go for this White Strawberry like they do the Red Strawberry even though it is just as sweet
Hardy Zones 4 to 8; Height 6”; Width 12-18”; Full Sun to Part Shade;
Constant moisture must be maintained until germination
Growing Fragaria Vesca from Seed:
Sow the Fragaria White Strawberry seeds indoors before your first frost. Use quality seed starter mix, and small pots or starter trays. Sow the Fragaria Vesca White seeds on the surface and gently press the seed into the mix. Don’t bury them deep, just gently press as they need light to germinate. Keep the soil damp but not wet, and seal the starter tray or pots inside a plastic bag until after germination. When the Strawberry seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them into 3 inch pots, and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. After all danger of frost has passed, harden the young white Strawberry plants over a period of 7 - 10 days before planting outdoors in their permanent location.
