Grows well from seed, very trouble-free. In my zone 10 garden they have been producing many strawberries through our mild winter. Very sweet, good flavor.
The only cons so far are that they are very small berries (but that may be because they are producing in their first year) and they have a lot of seeds (the seeds are not large or hard though)
