Alpine Strawberry Baron Von Solemacher


The Baron von Solemacher alpine strawberry is an antique German variety that yields dainty clusters of deep red, sweet and juicy berries, which can be up to 25 mm in diameter.

Although we aren’t sure who the Baron was, we know that this variety was first offered by F.C. Heinemann, a German seed merchant, in 1935.

Alpine strawberries are hardy perennial plants that will flower and fruit from late spring until the first frosts.

It’s also an early-fruiting variety – the first strawberries may develop as quickly as 3 months after sowing.

They make a joyous addition to pastries but are also popular in their raw state.

    Expert tip Tiny strawberry seeds require a bit of patience, but don’t give up on them. Sow them on the surface and don’t cover them. Be sure not to let the soil dry out – not even for a few hours. For best results, keep the soil temperature at around 20°.

    Pollinators Borage and thyme attract bees and butterflies, helping with strawberry pollination. Pests Grow companion plants that attracts ladybirds to prevent aphids attacks.

    How to eat Alpine strawberries can be cooked and used in jams, tarts and other sweet treats. But, in my opinion, the best way to experience their delicious flavour and scent is to grow them in your garden and eat them fresh, straight from plant to mouth.
