Fragaria vesca Alexandria

Alpine Strawberry Alexandria

A long-established American cultivar of alpine strawberry, Fragaria vesca Alexandria is a deciduous, bushy, short-lived perennial, producing pretty, white, single flowers and small, but delicious fruit. The plant bears fruit over a long period from mid-summer to late autumn, and is a fairly heavy cropper for an alpine strawberry. The bright red fruit is smaller and less juicy than summer strawberries, but larger and juicier than most alpine strawberries, with a lovely aromatic flavour, making a beautiful garnish for cakes, puddings and fruit salads. Alpine Strawberry Alexandria does not produce runners, making it much easier to manage than ordinary strawberries. Makes a very pretty edging to a flower- or vegetable-bed, and does well in containers.
