Tristan Strawberry

Fragaria x ananassa 'Tristan'

This everbearing strawberry is just as attractive as it is delicious! Hot pink blossoms adorn the plant while producing bright, sweet fruit all summer long. The compact form produces few to no runners, making it a great performer in pots, but it grows just as happily in the garden. May remain evergreen in frost-free climates.
