Early to fruit, this attractive ornamental strawberry will keep cropping until the first hard frosts of autumn, but the key difference with any strawberry currently on the market is the unique flavour. It combines the sweetness of home-grown strawberries with the special taste of the wild woodland or alpine strawberry. The flavour is stronger and more stable over the season than varieties with a similar aroma note, like 'Mara des Bois' and 'Charlotte'. Looks stunning cascading from hanging baskets and patio pots.
