Strasberries

 I'm not sure how these will turn out but there was so little on the Internet when I researched them, that I figured we'd share our experiencee right from the beginning.  We planted them in our raised beds one plant per square foot.  We ordered these from our local online Farmers Fresh Market and we are excited to see what they will do.

 
The strasberry has an interesting history.  Much of the information available does seem to contradict itself. The plant originated in South America. It is clear that the fruit was close to extinction when some dutch farmers developed it commercially and it's been making a come back. 
 
Personal accounts have the strasberry plants multiplying quickly like strawberry plants so we have high hopes that we will eventually have more plants than we know what to do with.
