Mara Des Bois strawberry was developed by a French breeding program. This variety produces small to medium fruit, and contains the highest flavor and fragrance of any everbearer. Berries have an attractive red color with a high gloss.  Planted in the spring, Mara Des Bois will produce fruit during the summer into the fall.  The following spring it also produces a good spring crop.  Although considered a specialty variety for home gardeners, it is also good for commercial applications when high taste and berry fragrance is required.

Reviews

Just planted these in raised garden beds and gave them plenty of water. Two days later they are just putting out new leaves. Looking forward to berries in the summer.

It took a year for the strawberries to get established, but once they did I have enough strawberries to feed my neighborhood. Before I planted this variety I did take the time to get the ph correct (6.6) and to add strawberry food to the soil. The first year six plants spread through out a 4x8 raised bed garden. The second year the plants were strong and huge and have been producing 3 lbs a week in the late spring and early summer. I have to keep them trimmed or they threaten to take over that area of my yard. They seem hardy and and as of yet, I haven't had to spray for any type of pest or correct the soil. They are delicious and easy to make jam with. After giving away jars of strawberry jam to my family and neighbors I have so much strawberry jam leftover I may have to start selling it at the local farmer's market.
