Details

White Soul is a unique alpine strawberry that only reaches about 6 inches in height and does not spread with runners. This allows for planting these in small spaces. The plants yield loads of small, white to cream colored, aromatic fruits over a very long period. The blooms are ongoing all season long so the strawberries can be enjoyed from spring until frost each year. They have a distinctive taste, being very sweet with a hint of pineapple. They are excellent for eating fresh right out of your hand or for using in jams. Birds are said to not eat the white strawberries like they are known to eat the red varieties.
