Strawberries

Asked March 5, 2017, 12:03 PM EST

What varieties of strawberries do local growers use? Where can I purchase them? The varieties sold at lowes, walmart, etc. Just don't seem to do as well as they should. I'm thinking it is because they are not indigenous to this area. I would like to try a variety that local farmers grow, that have a proven track record in this area. Thanks.
