Fragaria ananassa 'Marshall'

Famous food connoisseur James Beard called Marshall the most delicious strawberry ever grown. Discovered in Massachusetts before 1900, it was grown commercially in the Pacific Northwest until the 1960's when, after being infected with viruses, it was replaced by modern varieties. These heritage June-borne fruits will make the best preserves you ever tasted!

Historic Strawberry in the PNW

Plants arrived well packaged and the plants look great, very healthy. I will be gardening as "clean" as possible to avoid viruses. With respect to Massachusetts, this strawberry also has a historic role in PNW culture and is well worth growing & knowing.

Marshall Strawberries

The plants arrived in fine shape, albeit 5 months early. They are doing fine in the garage until spring. We cannot wait to enjoy them

Marshall Strawberry's History

This is the Marshall strawberry that was developed in the 19th century by Marshall Ewell on what is now a heritage farm above the North River in North Marshfield Massachusetts. After the last of the Ewell family died, I bought the farm and restored the deep loam growing fields percolated with springs and added heirloom apples and other period and native plantings to the organic farm. The Marshall strawberry is delicious, sweet, and succulent. The strawberries were picked in the 19th century, crated, and placed on barges and shipped on the North River to the Boston markets. It is wonderful to see the Marshall strawberry commercially available for sale. This is a heritage berry worth preserving for generations to come.
