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. Our plants are from the 'Marshall' grown from virus-free stock from the USDA germplasm repository in Corvallis Oregon. Sold in a 4" pot.

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.

A great start

The strawberry arrived in excellent condition. I am planting it inside a 27 gallon storage container(with lots of holes for drainage). It is inside a fence, to keep the deer away from it. It is doing well, going to sleep for the winter.
After watering it (in the container it came in), immediately after arrival, I set it out to dry. Deer ate all the leaves, but it seems to be alive.

Large well rooted plants

Plants came well packaged with no damage. Unboxed, we found them to be deeply rooted and a deep healthy green. I was impressed with the overall size of the plants. They are now in the garden and slowly growing in this chilly weather. We are optimistic for great things come spring.
