Alpine Strawberry (Fragaria vesca) A cottage garden favorite, the woodland-like sprays of these delicate but easy to grow plants produce delicious, aromatic red strawberries about twice the size of wild berries. They bear fruit in the second year; although in some cases fruit may appear in the first fall. Alpine strawberry plants stay compact and produce few runners so they make excellent houseplants even when they arenÂ’t producing fruit. Includes: heirloom seed, growing medium, coconut husks for drainage, leak-proof coloring bag, garden stake, directions. Bag 10" high x 6.5" wide.
