I've had really good results growing "Alexandria" variety. It's bigger than
the true fraise de bois and more prolific. Still, it's only thumbnail size.
Flavor is "yummers." (and the birds adore them...and leave other stuff alone
as a result).

I get my seed from Gourmet Gardener. They have web site; the address is They need to be planted 3+ months before
last spring frost, so that means I have to start them in early January. They
start producing for me the first year.
