The Alpine Strawberry "White Soul" is a hardy perennial that provides fresh strawberries in small spaces. Ongoing blooms, delicious fruits, easy. Vigorous, runner less, heavy-cropping variety with the same leaf, size and structure as the red only the berries are white, very sweet, slightly larger, and have a hint of pineapple in their taste.
Strawberries produce continuously from spring through fall. Space the plants at least 18" apart or use a very large container for maximum production. Superb in containers. Will often naturalize in partly shaded well watered areas of your garden. Day-neutral, grows best in zones 5-8, but will tolerate colder climates with heavy mulching.
white strawberries??? We get a lot of funny comments - can they really be eaten? Well, they can, and they are very good. They spread by seed - one berry dropped will give lots of little plants next year. Good ground cover, nice under roses. They produce for many months each summer. Good dried, and makes exceptionally good jam.
A friend of mine who is a master canner remarked to me that the best way to describe this strawberry is that- if heaven had a taste, this would be it. Really the white alpine strawberries are much sweeter than the red and quite delicious. Interestingly, I grew red and white next to each other and got a plant with berries that each berry is half white and half red, almost like a stripe.
The taste is like a cross between a strawberry and a grape! Extremely easy if you have a little shade I'm in zone 8b
