Breeding with Fragaria moschata

Especially since I've had a few enquiries lately about F. moschata in the past week or two, I thought I'd share this article with you folks:

Berried Treasure (Smithsonian.com)

It covers the efforts of Harry Swartz (an interesting character) to incorporate the aromatic characters of the musk strawberry into a commercial cultivar, and it's by David Karp, another interesting character (and I mean that in the nicest way) who I had the pleasure of talking with at fairly great length while he researched the article. He's promising a more science-heavy version of the story in an upcoming article, as well as a future book. Karp has a great number of interesting writings about fruit out there...I'm in a bit of a rush now or I'd link to them, but a little Googling should turn up lots, and I think I've linked to several in the past...).

I'm off to water my plants and check out my strawberry hybrids!

So how are your strawberry hybrids doing?

This article inspires me to try breeding my own hybrids, without the selection for Florida-tolerance and shipability.

Individuals ignorant of their current money related state keep applying for advances, bringing about higher loan costs simultaneously, and wind up further owing debtors. In the event that you can't manage the cost of an auto, don't get it! Rather, attempt to discover approaches to enhance your FICO assessment. Auto Title Loans Chicago
