I had the privilege of participating in the growing out and final selections of this intentional cross made by my friend, Tollie Jason Haynes, of Seaside Seeds.

 

This variety is sun-loving and will progress quickly, producing stunning large (1lb +/-) dark pink hearts with anthocyanin shoulders. Fruits are meaty and juicy and fragrant and mellow with just the right amount of zing. Sliced, interior flesh is dark rose-pink. 

 

Deeply serrated leaves (commonly referred to as 'wispy-leaved') look fragile and graceful. Plants appear to be gangly, like a new fawn trying to keep their legs under themselves. But don't be deceived, these are robust plants and will produce through to killing frost.

 

HISTORY:  An intentional cross made by Tollie Jason Haynes of Seaside Seeds. Parentage: [A pink version / off-type of] 'German Red Strawberry' X 'OSU Blue'.

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call. His name is James Johns and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!
