Quinalts are the only ones I'll grow.
They're super sweet, soft, and the fun part-the runners fruit unplanted !
One thing I have noticed which may or may not be limited to Quinalts, is that if planted too closely, a gray fuzzy fungus will appear.
If that happens, I cut off the affected leaves and fruits.
Quinalts seem to be prone to this, and when I grew other varities of strawberries, none seemed affected by fungus at all.
Bill, what do you think and have you seen this fungus in your Quinalts?

I get the grey mold during wet periods and grey days, but if I prop the berries up off the ground it seems to solve the problem. I've never grown any other varieties because I started with two dozen Quinaults and have never had to buy another plant... not that I would buy another variety if I did have to buy more. I only keep about 25 plants because they produce more than my guests and myself can usually eat!

I know what you mean-I don't even look at any other variety.
