I've only had one small ripe fruit produced by a very mature plant (strawberry plants' produce become smaller as the plant gets older). Not too sour, not sweet, but quite pleasant.

Hihi,

If you guys want to get some strawberry plants, I found some in Sungai Buloh in Malaysia. There one of the nursery there (with Baba brand signboards) that are selling some of them (I think 4 more pots). I bought one pot for RM10, and hope I can get good supplies of strawberries from now on.

Will try and post the pic of the pot when I get back home. In office now. My pot has quite some strawberries growing now.

i`m just curious. where do the strawberry plants in WF come from plse ? Our supply in KL comes from Cameron highlands. it doesn`t fare well in our weather. but the ones in Camerons are gorgeous & about 70% sweet on average.

i`ve tried seeds of runnerless strawberries ( Yates i think ) & they germinated quite well but only produced small fruits.

i`ve got the ornamental s`berries too, cute, crunchy but quite tasteless.

I dumped a whole lot of seeds into my worm compost bin...

kinda testing to see what happens to the strawberries seeds.

ever accidentally let other seeds or plant roots left behind in the worm bin and they grew back their leaves like in a week... it's like a healing centre for my dying plants...

Nope... not seed. I picked up some half dead plants and revived them. They were half dead so I thought might as well try.

Next time, I will grow from seed... Take pics of your fruits yeah?

I had a pot sometime back that only produced 2 flowers. The flowers are short lived and fruit started forming. One little berry rotted the other one managed to grow full size but still seemed small to me, smaller than the korean varieties, that was it and the plant conked after that.
