Re: Help with strawberry

The size and shape of the fruit in first photo makes me think of alpine strawberries or wild strawberries. They grow intensely flavored berries that are ony about the size of fingertips. The fruits typically do not keep well and so are not usually sold in stores. My east coast native wild species F. virginiana bear fruits that will get mushy within hours of being picked and only taste good if picked daily at peak ripeness, but they only bear in June. If yours is a repeat bearer, they are probably Alpine strawberries.

Were you expecting a cultivated variety size strawberries? What is the name of this variety?
Learning never ends because we can share what we've learned. And in sharing our collective experiences, we gain deeper understanding of what we learned.

I kinda expected a cultivated variety size fruit but more with pest issues (;. Not sure on the variety i just took a random sprout they sold in stores. didn't said it was alpine or a wild just said strawberry's. :|

wild strawberry's seems to match though. If this plant is a wild or alpine strawberry,then my second similar plant must be different. It hasn't produced any blossom when i got it.

how many different type of strawberry are out there?

thanks!
