It’s hard to believe that white berries could taste good. But trust us, this alpine strawberry (Fragaria vesca albocarpa) is a little morsel of heaven. The harvest is light, though; buy five plants to start. raintreenursery.com
Grow it: Plant in sun to light shade, in rich, well-draining soil; space plants 8 to 12 in. apart. Water regularly.
