Italian Alpine Strawberry Seed
Fragaria vesca This Italian everbearing strawberry produces aromatic, delightful, miniature berries the size of the tip of your little finger. The plant's compact growth habit produces few runners, making it an excellent edible ornamental for rock gardens, pots, and footpaths. Like wild strawberries, these deep red berries are more flavorful than their full-sized cousins. Serve over ice cream for a taste of heaven!
