Description

 Its early spring flowers translate into early picking of these heavenly edibles months sooner than domestic types. 2cm  fruits are packed with flavour.  I found these creeping onto a decommissioned logging road in full sun and severely compacted coarse soil.  I’m hoping plants will provide larger fruits given better growing conditions.  Bears lots of fruits that seem to be tucked around the base of the plant, not held aloft or sprawling like other strawberries I’ve picked.  Differs from F. chilonensis by having longer mat textured leaves and not as tolerant to a maritime (salt spray) conditions.  Will make a lovely edible ground cover in short time. Blazing scarlet fall colour.

How to germinate Fragaria virginiana seeds:

Soak seed 24 hours. Mix with a small amount of sand and sow thinly on the surface of a sand based medium. Keep moist. Chill to mimic early spring conditions for 60-90 days (do not freeze) a unheated greenhouse is ideal. Germinate at 20 C. Use a good wide nursery pot and prick out seedlings when in they have their 4th set of true leaves into individual pots to grow out and transplant
