Description More Information
Yellow Wonder Alpine Strawberry (100mg):
The sweet delicious fruit on this variety is produced the first year if started early enough in the spring. It is yellow, juicy, fragrant and 1" long. Finding an heirloom strawberry plant that can be grown from seed is quite difficult. Germination may be as low as 70%. With the proper care, however, the 'fruit' of your labor will be quite rewarding!

Planting Instructions:
Strawberries require a loose, loamy, slightly acidic soil (pH 6.0-6.5) and full sun to achieve peak berry quality, but they will tolerate a variety of soil conditions as long as they have adequate drainage. Prepare your strawberry beds by turning under 1/2"-1" high quality, animal manure or plant residue-based compost. Compost composed of cedar or redwood is not an acceptable substitute for high quality compost. Also it is a great idea to lay mulching film on the soil as it greatly reduces the need for weeding. Give all strawberry varieties 1" of water per week, preferably using drip-type irrigation to minimize berry spoilage and keep the beds thoroughly weeded! After the first frost, mulch beds with straw or agricultural fabrics. Where snow remains on the ground throughout the Winter, no mulching is required. When the ground warms in Spring, remove any organic mulches, but leave agricultural fabrics on until the first flowers appear; fabrics will speed growth but prevent pollination if left on during blossoming. All strawberry varieties are prone to diseases caused by overly moist soil conditions and overcrowding. Soil must be kept loose and well drained, plants must be properly spaced and ripe or moldy fruit picked daily. Snails and slugs can be a significant problem, but are controlled using traps and copper strip-barriers. Netting, scare balloons and flash tape work very well against birds.

Strawberries are their sweetest when fully ripened on the plants. For most varieties this means leaving the berries on the plant for a day or two after they are fully colored. The only way to know for sure is a taste test. Strawberries bruise easily. Be gentle when pulling them from the plants. Snap the stem directly above the berry rather than pulling on the berry itself. Keep harvested berries in a cool, shady location.

Saving Seeds:
Strawberry seeds are easily separated from ripe fruit by placing them in a household blender with a cup of water and blending at high speed for just a few seconds. (Not too long, or the seeds may be damaged). The good seeds will settle to the bottom, and the fruit pulp and unripe seeds will float. Wait a minute or so for the seeds to settle, and pour off the liquid. The seeds can then be rinsed or scraped out and allowed to dry on a paper towel.

Strawberry: Yellow Wonder Alpine January 17, 2017
Reviewer: Tina from Albuquerque , NM United States  
I was originally sent collards instead of the yellow strawberries. Then you said would send me these but they never came. Which is fine I still have another variety. It's too late  in the year to start strawberries by  in this area of the country now. Sounds like a great company though.

Highly Recommended November 26, 2016
Reviewer: The Narrow Way Farm from Zone 6a  
High germ rates, nearly 100%.  Very easy to start in a mini indoor greenhouse.  We started ours in a Burpee self watering seed starter in January 2016.  They were healthy and ready to transplant by Spring, some with flowers on them.  We started harvesting little sweet fruity (slight pineapple) flavored berries around mid summer and continued until frost!
