The musk strawberry is has a taste that some say is reminiscent of pineapple
Musk strawberrieswere once more widely grown than they are now, being known as the
hautboy strawberry, or
hautbois in France. A deciduous species, they have large pale green, downy leaves and flowers produced on upright stalks making the fruit easier to find.
The berries are variable in size some being quite large and they tend to remain uneven in colour as they ripen, and as the name suggests, they have a musky aromatic flavour unique among strawberries.
We have found that this strawberry does not fruit every year, what they will do is produce many runners, some of which should fruit for you the next year so let as many as possible root for maximum fruit production.
