Klondike Strawberries

cfj52April 26, 2012

I am searching for a source of Klondike Strawberry Plants. Years ago, this was the main berry grown in Ponchatoula. The old timers still talk about the wonderful flavor.

Klondike was the top berry in the south, well most of the country back in the day.

We started sacrificing quality for portability, though I am sure you already knew that. My granfather in law was raised on a strawberry farm and said they were by far the best. I do believe some are in Mexico and am trying to get my hands on them. He said they withstood the heat and spread out runners for propagation freely. I am looking online for him, me, and probably 20 other people so if you find some let me know.
