Strawberry, “Red and Yellow Wonder Blend” Seeds
Homegrown alpine strawberries are bushels above store-bought whose flavor can’t compare. Wonder Blend bears small red or light yellow, intensely fragrant fruits from late spring/early summer on, taking a break in hot weather. Plants don’t have runners, so they won’t meander, making them a tidy, delicious border or container contender. If started indoors, you can expect fruit the first year. Replace every 3 years for best production or add a few new plants annually. Perennial in USDA zones 5–9.
