Why Grow Straw­berries?

Strawberry plants are beautiful: Strawberries are one of the best ornamental edible plants to grow in containers, especially hanging baskets.

Kid friendly: Growing and sampling strawberries brings inspiration to budding young gardeners.

So much more delicious than store-bought: If you have eaten a just-picked, sun-warmed, ripe strawberry, you know why.

Strawberries are perennials: Count on multiple seasons of bountiful harvests.

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. The delicious 1 in. berries appear 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.
