Grown from Seed and Runners From Specific Selections Known for Good Fruit Production
Woodland strawberry is found in oak and hickory woodlands throughout North America. It is difficult to distinguish between it and the wild strawberry as they share many characteristics. The fruit size varies from 1/4" to 1/2". The quality of fruit is very good for eating fresh or making jam. Our seedlings were grown from our 'Intensity' variety and come out similar to it in fruit size and flavor. Easy to grow as a groundcover under a tree. These seedlings will help fruiting by cross pollinating each other. In shade the plants will be taller and less vigorous. Our plantings are quite dense making it ideal for a groundcover where fruit production is secondary. A wider 12 inch by 12 inch spacing will make for greater fruit yields, until the runners begin to fill in. This is a vigorous selection. Our field plants are more mixed than the potted ones as the pots were all grown from seed whereas the field ones come from a greater variety of sources. In general, these tolerate fairly good shade and have larger than average berries.
