(Fragaria vesca)
EXCLUSIVE - These special Alpine Strawberries produce a multitude of plump, 1 inch pointed pastel yellow berries with the delectable flavor and aroma of pineapples and roses. The mounding little strawberry plants with their bright green leaves are rugged, easy to grow and do not set runners. Alpine strawberries begin bearing their first season, offering gemlike little fruits all summer and plants will grow larger and return every season. Indulge yourself by pairing “Pineapple” with our red fruiting “Mignonette” for a perfect summer duet.

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 (16-21°C) and provide a strong light source. Keep evenly moist but not soggy. Be patient, seeds can take 14 to 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. Heirloom Pineapple bears sweet 1 inch fruits the first season after sowing. Plants 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 pastel yellow and give slightly to the touch. Sprinkle over morning cereal or nestle the berries on tarts or cakes.
