White Soul Wild Strawberry
White Soul (Fragaria Vesca White Soul) - If you want a vigorous perennial ground cover plant, grow Strawberry seeds! These hardy perennials provide fresh strawberries in small spaces. Fragaria white Strawberry produces ongoing blooms and delicious white berries. This Strawberry plant produces a heavy crop with the same leaf size and structure as red Strawberry varieties. White Strawberry plants do not spread with runners, and their berries are very sweet and have a hint of pineapple in their taste. The flowers and fruit continue all season and the plants make great edgings for gardens. Birds are said to not eat the white Strawberries like they are known to eat the red varieties.
Growing Fragaria Vesca From Seed: Sow the Fragaria white Strawberry seeds from January to April indoors. Use quality seed starter mix, and small pots or starter trays. Sow the Fragaria Vesca white seeds on the surface and press the seed into the mix. 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.
For Florida growers: Plant strawberries during the fall months--late September through October. Flower and berry growth begins in November; the harvest generally takes place in the months of April and May.
