Fragaria chiloensis - 2013


By Andrewr

Fragaria chiloensis - 2013 (Fragaria chiloensis)

Strawberry relative, grown for its white flowers. I've found this one needs good drainage to come through the winter. but is otherwise easy to please

I had something similar to this as a house plant many years ago..I put it in a strawberry pot and it sent runners everywhere. does it produce berries...are they edible?

the houseplant never bloomed...just produced many runners.

Lori - yes, they do produce small fruit, but they're bland and have no taste to speak of. All the ornamental varieties are bred for their flowers, not the taste of their fruit

i have a small knoll near the front door which is covered with the wild strawberries...they are very small, not extremely sweet..but they have great strawberry flavour! They are a pretty ground cover at present...soon I will have to battle the robins for the fruit!
