Obviously these times could be shorter or longer if conditions were changed, but it is what happened for me this year.

Attila is one of the very few alpine strawberries that grows runners. They have been named after Attila the Hun due to their propensity to take new ground. In my opinion they are an excellent edible ground cover that should be part of every permaculture garden.
The seeds were very easy to germinate, the plants were simple to grow, and the strawberries are delicious.
