Pronounced 'Shirano' and recommended as a much improved alternative to the popular 'Mara des Bois'. Still with the same wonderful rich aromatic flavour inherited from the wild woodland Strawberry, but with much better disease resistance, especially Botrytis. The harvest period starts in July and goes on right through to the frosts! The lovely bright attractive colour and the very fragrance of the fruit invites you to sample the perfect flavour. A compact plant with dark green lustrous foliage. A truly excellent introduction. Outstanding for it's cropping period and flavour. Perfect for dessert and makes a really tasty jam. A season extender. Simply must be tried.
