It’s a fact of life, “fresh is best”. There is simply no better way of having fresher vegetables packed with nutrients and fibre, than harvesting them right from your very own garden. Pohlmans Gourmet Vegetables® Strawberry Sweetheart is an alpine type with white flowers, bearing large deep red, sweet fruit. Best eaten fresh, you can also use in jams, tarts, ice cream, fruit salads and smoothies. Strawberries can be frozen but lose most of their nutritional value.
Care: Ideally, plant into a garden bed which is fertile, enriched in organic matter, and well drained. Mulching is recommended to help conserve water.
