I was perusing Nourse and Indiana Berry sites, looking at various berry plants. I see that Nourse has Mara des Bois, they said one attribute is its aroma, is that something you've noticed, that it has an intense berry scent compared with other strawbs? You said MdB is everbearing, does that mean it puts out a big early summer crop, then another smaller crop in the fall?
We have a row that we planted last year as a gift from my in-laws, but I don't know what variety. But, I would like to maybe add two more runs of 25 plants. I was leaning towards maybe Jewel and Honeoye. I also seen good reviews for Ozark Beauty on Stark's site, but I'm not too keen on buying from them. Any comments on these 3 varieties?
I do notice that IB's strawbs run more expensive than most other berry vendors, like around $16 for a run of 25 plants, compared to about $11 from Nourse. IB do have better prices on blueberries, gooseberries and some other berry products.
