<< Alexandra alpines growing out in the back yard but have not 
seen any fruit on them yet - maybe this year!  >>

These are the best, fragrant and oh the flavor --Fraise.  They are very 
popular in France.  My grandchildren run to the patch the minute they arrive. 
 The only "pest" problem is our Lhasa Apso who loves these and eagerly picks 
and eats them!  Of course she also loves tomatoes.  She's tiny so I don't 
worry about those treats for her.
