I grew several types of Alpine strawberries from seed. Yellow wonder is one of the best tasting. The white or pale yellow color keeps birds from eating the berries.

'Yellow Wonder' is a yellow-white fruited version of Alpine Strawberries. The plants bunch rather than throw runners, so they are not invasive. The berries are quite small, but sweet. Alpines prefer alkaline soil and adequate moisture.
