Does anyone here grow these variety and can share their experience good/bad.
Bought 50 rooted plants(was much cheaper) if i would buy 1 plant, 10 or 20. Same shipping cost no matter how many plants you buy.

Thanks.

Hi Cora. Looking this berry up and reading about it makes my mouth water.
Here is some information I found on them, you may already know.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pineberry

Some interesting information on how to get the largest crop possible from your pineberry strawberry plants.

I look forward to seeing how they do for you. I would love to see photos of them.

I almost got one with a gift certificate (got that Sedum, instead, Lynn Hilarious! ). Very interested in knowing how well they do for you.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

Thumb of 2015-02-26/CoraBarner/2e18ae Thumb of 2015-02-26/CoraBarner/b9f731

They were all dormant, no leaves soak it for over night then potted up. This is what they look today after 24 hours.

Looks promising.
