Strawberry Seeds

Post  brianj555 on 10/28/2017, 10:45 am

Anyone have an abundance or some extra strawberry seeds they would be willing to send me?  I’m very very early in my ANSFG career, so I don’t have much to offer in return yet.  If I can help with anything I will.  
Thanks in advance.

I've never tried strawberries from seed, but I have been successful digging up wild strawberries and transplanting them into a bed. Any chance of finding any of those on your property?

Anybody know if a grocery store strawberry could be be buried to produce a new plant? That might be an interesting search. thinking  The answer is NO, but here's a link that tells how to get seeds from a store-bought strawberry.

CN,

I keep getting volunteer strawberry plants from composted store-bought strawberries.  Does that answer your question?

Strawberries are usually grown from plants (runners which are clones of the parent) rather than seeds, except for a few varieties like the Alpine strawberries. The modern big juicy strawberries are mostly hybrids of two (or more) different species, so they don't breed true from seed.

Ok.  I just read an article about starting them from seed and thought I would give it a shot.  After searches by for them locally without any luck, I thought I would check here.

Hmmmm...thinking  I’m guessing I could give that a shot.  I was just thinking that once the fruit has been refrigerated, it wouldn’t germinate.  ( someone told me that ).  But then I thought ....thinking wait ... I keep my seeds refrigerated to keep them fresh.  So I guess that info was off!

Funny you should mention that. I was going to start a thread about volunteer strawberries until I saw this thread, and specifically your comment.  


All these strawberry plants voluntarily came up in my garden beds because the seeds survived the compost. Last weekend I transplanted these from the beds to this hanging pot. I've had volunteer strawberries before the past couple of years, but nothing close to this many, and what a nice surprise!

dstack,

Have you tasted any strawberries from those volunteers yet?

I plan to leave mine where they are for a while, and if I don't like their flavor, straight to the compost pile they go!

Not from this new batch, but I did eat them from previous volunteers and they were some of the best tasting strawberries I've had.  Although they were a bit small.
