Found growing in the marsh dunes of Currituck Island around the turn of the century (1905), this beautiful native variety is practically unknown in the garden community. Tall, thorny, arching cane with palmate-compound leaves, white, 5-petaled flowers. One of the first producers of the season. This disease-resistant and heat-tolerant variety will give you large berries that are a tasty blend of sweetness and tartness each year. Fruit stores well for extended enjoyment. Ripens in early June. Self-pollinating. Prefers a light sandy loam, but will do well in garden soil.
