White Strawberries

Well i never expected that frost this morning here in the northwest however the sun was with to warm the garden up quickly.

Yesterday i planted up my white strawberries, i purchased a parent plant last year and from this  i got lots of runners before the autumn, i now have a dozen. we shall see how they fair compared to the red.

The white strawberry (Fragaria Vessca) is suppose to taste like pinapple, why is it white, well it’s lacking in a protein called Fra a1 this protein is needed to turn them red
