A History of the Strawberry, From Ancient Gardens to Modern Markets
Stephen Wilhelm et al
This book was written to honor the founders of the Institute, and with the hope that it will be enjoyed not only by them but also by everyone who has ever sat down to the season's first fresh strawberries and found them delightful. The garden strawberry of today is traceable only to the eighteenth century, and is perhaps the youngest or most recent of all cultivated fruits. How it came into existence, and the history of its parents are developed in this book.
