Strawberry, Alpine White Soul

Short Description

Small, white, flavorful alpine strawberry. Vigorous, productive, everbearing plants.

Full Description

Like Yellow Wonder, White Soul does not suffer from the lack of typical strawberry red pigments. Birds leave fruits alone, and plants do not need protective netting. The unusual flavor of White Soul blends well with mesclun mixes and baby greens. Vigorous everbearing plants provide continuous harvest through summer. White fruits could use some protection from direct hot sun.

Fall Planted Fruits
Fall is an ideal time to plant fruit plants. Plants will establish strong root systems and get a jump on spring growth.

Growing Strawberries
Soft succulent strawberries are difficult to find store bought. The answer is to grow your own – too soft to ship but unmatched for flavor. See how easy it is.

    • Choose a location with loose, well-drained soil containing plenty of organic matter.
    • Strawberries may also be planted in containers or pyramid gardens, as an edging for flower and shrub borders or in matted beds and rows.
    • To grow in rows, space strawberry plants 18-24 inches apart in rows 3-5 feet apart. Runners will form new plants and eventually form a solid bed.

    Planting Bare Root Plants:

    • Soak roots in lukewarm water two hours before planting.
    • Trim roots to 3 inches long and pick off any blossoms or dead leaves.
    • Using a trowel, open a hole large enough to spread roots out without bunching roots.
    • Set plants in the hole so that the crown is level with the surrounding soil line.
    • Press soil firmly against roots.
    • Water frequently until plants are growing vigorously.

    Planting Potted Plants:

    • Make sure the root ball is sufficiently moist.
    • Carefully unpot the plant.
    • Set plants so the crown is level with the surround soil line.
    • Back fill the hole with soil and press soil firmly against the root ball.
    • Water frequently until plants are growing vigorously.
    • Apply a light mulch to keep weeds down, conserve moisture and keep fruit clean.
    • After harvest, remove old foliage. Be careful not to injure the crowns.
    • Fertilize beds in early summer and again in September with a balanced fertilizer. Do not fertilize if plants are flowering.
    • Watering is very important in early summer and September. 
    • Note that June-bearing plants produce the second year after planting. Cut all runners off during the first year, leave 2-3 runners the second year.
    • Winter protection for all strawberry varieties is important in most northern areas. Apply a mulch of straw or other loose organic matter 2-3 inches deep over the plants after the ground freezes but before the temperature drops below 20 degrees F. In spring, pull the mulch back into the rows.
    • Pick the fruit as it ripens, when fully red.
    • Pick with a short piece of stalk attached.
    • Regular picking will help keep the plants fruiting.
    • Fruits are best eaten straight off the plants, and may be kept for up to a week in the refrigerator if kept dry. They are also easily frozen, or made into preserves.
