Fragaria x ananassa

Grew here, just north of Madison, Wisconsin. The strawberries were perfection--in taste and in perfume. I was told Fairfax disappeared because it was another victim of the need for fruit that ships without damage. We found that it was absolutely true that Fairfax could hardly survive the trip from garden to kitchen without bruising. Seriously. Although we usually ate most of them on the way to the kitchen, we learned to eat the rest soon after as refrigerating them reduced the amazing quality. Bottom-line, Fairfax is one of those ephemeral, seasonal treats you dream about all winter, and greedily gobble up when its time finally arrives. So, is Fairfax worth the trouble? Absolutely. Grow Sparkle strawberries to freeze; grow Fairfax strawberries, if you're lucky enough to find them, for a sublime strawberry experience. And please get in touch if you find any as we'd love to grow them again.
