ALPINE STRAWBERRY – Ruegen

(75 seeds)

$4.20

(2 customer reviews)

World-famous improvement on the alpine strawberry

Alpine strawberries offer a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. Ruegen, a superb selection from a plant that has been loved for centuries, doesn't produce runners. Instead, it produces gorgeous clusters of sweet fruits, and although spring is its favorite season, it's quite capable of producing all year round. Pretty enough to plant as a garden perennial, Ruegen strawberries are equally at home in pots or hugging the ground between other veggies. Enjoy them fresh, or grow a large batch for jam production - if you can resist the juicy fruits before they ever hit the saucepan!

How to Sow

For best results, chill your seeds in the freezer for 3 weeks before sowing. Allow them to come up to room temperature, and then scatter them on moist medium. Cover with a thin layer of medium. These seeds need to be constantly moist, so consider placing your container in a larger one with a little water that can wick upwards or covering the container with cling-wrap or clear plastic.

How to Harvest

Wait until your strawberries are ripe (red in colour) before picking. Use a scissors to cut the stems so that you don’t bruise the berries when picking. Check for ripe fruit every three days.
