Fresca

Strawberry Seeds

(OP) Fragaria x ananassa

This is the best seed grown, open pollinated traditional strawberry, and in our experience the easiest to grow. Delicious 1 in. berries from early summer until frost on vigorous plants with few runners. Fresca strawberries are perfect for containers or raised beds. For the fastest crop start seeds indoors in winter and plant outside in spring

Growing Fresca Strawberry Seeds

Bee introduces how to plant

Traditional Strawberries: Sow seed in cell packs or flats, press into soil but do not cover. Needs light to germinate. Kept at 60-65°F., germination averages 21-30 days. Transplant into the garden, 12 in. apart.

Alpine Strawberries: Sow in cell packs or flats, press into soil, barely cover. Cover flat with newspaper to exclude light; keep out of direct sun. Kept at 60°F., germination is in 2-5 weeks. Transplant 1 ft. apart.

Grower Tip: To encourage larger, more vigorous and bountiful plants, you may remove the first flush of flowers.
