New Strawberries

My new varieties of strawberries arrived this weekend in 3" pots - these are variations of Alpine strawberries, smaller than usual berry but the taste and fragrance is superior. I will be cleaning out my regular berries in a week or so and transplanting Cabot to another bed (and shipping few to those who asked in summer). But for now, I've planted these beauties in the small garden and hope next spring to have some interesting deserts.
From top left corner: Yellow Wonder; Pineberry; Purple Wonder and White Pine.

  1. I have yellow wonder too. I like it more than the red alpine variety that I have. Though I still like regular strawberries over the alpine types.

    1. I have a red variety from Europe and i find it much better than typical "alexandria" with stronger smell and flavor. I hope the others will be good. Of course all regular are great for eating as well.

  2. Wow! I didn't realize there were so many different kinds of strawberries! Will be interesting to see how they all do. Nancy

  3. Ditto Nancy's comment - all of those strawberries look so unusual. I'm looking forward to seeing you they perform for you next year!

  4. I've often wondered what the white strawberries taste like as they don;t look very appetising
