Can I vine strawberries on a fence?

I asked this elsewhere on site and got no reply so thought I'd come here and ask.

I have a fence around my house that is criss crossed. I wanted a vining plant to adorn the fence. My husband said if I did that why not make it useful as well. So we came upon the idea of vining strawberries along the fence. However this would be our first time doing anything like this so I thought I'd come here and see which strawberry variety will work for us? For our area they recommend the Tribute or Tristar of which I am not familiar.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance*S*

  • Have you ever seen strawberries on a vine? You won't. They grow in bushels.

  • Strawberries aren't a vine. So that wouldn't work. Grapes vine, Kiwi vine, if you want something annual - go for Cucumbers, Cantelopes, or other vining vegetables.

  • grape vines will destroy your fencing over time, the trunk on a grapevine can easily reach 8 inches across in as little as 5 years. GL
