ALPINE STRAWBERRY

Regular price £3.00 £0.00

The Baron von Solemacher alpine strawberry is an antique German variety that yields dainty clusters of deep red, sweet and juicy berries, which can be up to 25 mm in diameter. Although we aren’t sure who the Baron was, we know that this variety was first offered by F.C. Heinemann, a German seed merchant, in 1935. Alpine strawberries are hardy perennial plants that will flower and fruit from late spring until the first frosts. It’s also an early-fruiting variety – the first strawberries may develop as quickly as 3 months after sowing. They make a joyous addition to pastries but are also popular in their raw state – young and old alike will love the sweetness and heady aroma of these strawberries, which fill any room with a beautiful fragrance.
