Giant Strawberries, Fragaria ananassa L. Maximus sometimes called Pineapple Strawberries should not to be confused with another unusual strawberry cultivar the pineberry. Producers tout the pineapple Strawberry as easy to grow, some claims state they are as big as apples or peaches.
The average berry , once the plant is producing full swing is about the size of an egg, larger berries will sometimes reach the size an apple or peach but don't anticipate too many that big. Egg sized is still a pretty impressive Strawberry.
Once a seed has sprouted 2 full 'true' leaves, then you will be able to transplant them.
You should also keep in mind that these are hybrids that do not always produce true to variety. and sometimes do not produce at all. On occasion they will revert to their lineage and you could get simple standard sized fruits.
The best way to bypass the hassle of germination and sprouting plants is to purchase established plants instead of seeds. By starting from established plants you will get a reliable genetic consistency. Dormant potted plants are sometimes available as is bare root stock. If you already have at least one established plant or have access to some they can also be propagated from cuttings.
Strawberries should be planted in the early spring as soon as the soil is workable. Some Gardeners plant in September or Late Autumn in anticipation of the next season - this will work also dependent on the variety you are using. Strawberries do best in drained fairly rich soil, so be sure to add compost or other organic matter when preparing the strawberry patch. See - Strawberry Planting Guide
