NOT included in sale-here is why...( a variety described by Slow Food USA and the RAFT alliance in 2004 as one of the top ten endangered foods in the country...it was once known as “the finest eating strawberry in America” “exceedingly handsome, splendidly flavored, pleasantly sprightly, aromatic and juicy”. Who could resist that? I had to taste one.) http://www.slowfoodusa.org/index.php/slow_food/blog_post/the_longer_the_wait_the_sweeter_the_jam/

***Antique roses-a very long history of culinary uses in oils, teas, cakes, syrups, salads, candied petals and so much more (not included in the sale-I grow each one on it's own roots from cutting, it takes 2 years to offer them for sale)
