We’ve been careful to weigh in all the produce from the garden so far, but this was the first batch we had picked of these alternate colored alpine strawberries (pictured here with regular red ones). We are growing yellow and red alpine varieties, but it wasn’t readily apparent how yellow they were supposed to be, so we gauged ripeness by how they slid off the plant. We both agree they have a different flavor. My first one tasted kind of lemony, but a second one was not as sweet and tasted more berrylike. Mutti thought they melt in your mouth. We’ve been happy with the alpine berries as they are little fuss and once established seem to be very productive little shrubs. As an added bonus, I think the birds might leave the yellow ones alone even without protective netting.
