alpine strawberries, alexandria

Strawberry Alpine, Alexandria (Red) Fragaria Vesca

$5.50

Red alpine strawberry known for their abundant harvests and sweet, flavorful berries.  Their relatively small size also makes them a good choice for indoor or container growing. Alexandrias do not put out runners.

These delicious gourmet fruits are well behaved in the garden and are remarkably easy to grow.
Alpine Strawberries are  perennial  strains of wild or woodland strawberries. The plants develop gracefully, are very ornamental and ideal edging plants for garden paths or beds and look good in rockeries. They look great in pots and hanging gardens too.

Alpine strawberries were once a common medicinal herb used for diarrhea, inflammation of the liver, treating wounds, for aching throat, gout to name a few. All parts of the plant were used for different ailments.
It is said that alpine strawberry flowers add a mild, strawberry-like flavor if sprinkled on salads or when used as a garnish for drinks and desserts - I prefer harvesting the fruit though.
