Marshall Strawberry?

grrloutloud(6A)August 15, 2011

I just learned about Marshall Strawberries today - they were first grown in the Boston area (where I am), but it appears that the pacific northwest is the last hold-out of this rare plant.

There's a farm on Bainbridge Island that sometimes sells their plants who I've already written to, but if someone else has a plant that they know is Marshall, I'd love to buy a runner or two from you.

Let me know and thanks in advance!

Since strawberry cultivars are prone to accumulating debilitating viruses getting old stock over the back fence may not always work out.

This might also have something to do with the rather frequent replacement of one kind with another.

My MIL grew up on a farm growing them and she won't eat strawberries because none measure up to their Marshalls. But what I read indicated there may have been disease problems, or? I grow several kinds of Alpine Strawberries, they are very small but flavorful and keep on cranking them out.
