(Fragaria vesca)
EXCLUSIVE - A French delicacy. Our improved cultivar of heirloom Reine de Vallée produces dainty little pointed red berries with an ambrosial woodland flavor. Mignonette forms compact perennial plants that grow in pretty leafy mounds and produce fruits the first summer from seed to enjoy all season long. These special petite berries are lovely as a border edging or in containers, or plant them in hanging pots so you can pluck their exquisite little fruits as you stroll past.

BEST TO START EARLY INDOORS

In spring, sow seeds 1 inch apart and 1⁄8 inch deep in a container of fine seed starting mix. Maintain at 60-70°F (15-21°C). Provide a strong light source. Keep evenly moist but not soggy. Be patient: seeds take 14-28 days to germinate. Feed young seedlings every 2 weeks with half-strength fertilizer. When they have several sets of leaves, transplant 3 inches apart into a deeper container or individual pots so root systems have room to develop. When 3 inches tall, gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions and plant 12 inches apart in fertile soil in full sun or partial shade in very hot climates.

GROWING NOTES

Plant in window boxes or hanging baskets, or as a pretty edging along a garden path or border. Mignonette plants bear sweet 1 inch fruits the first season after sowing and grow about a foot across without sending out runners. Feed and water regularly and plants will continue to fruit for 2 to 4 years.

HARVEST AND USE

Pick and enjoy these petite perfumed berries when they turn a deep red and give slightly to the touch. Sprinkle over morning cereal or nestle the ruby colored berries on tiny tarts or cakes.
