This fruit demands a deep rich soil, and such conditions are best secured on a good sound loam. The plants are placed at distances apart varying from two feet to two feet and a half and should be surrounded by a mulch. It is a good plan to remove the flowers during the first year and thus prevent fruition until the second year. Propagation is carried on by means of runners which are thrown out by the adult plants. These, if left to themselves, take root in the adjacent soil. They should be removed as soon as roots are formed and bedded out. Rooting is aided by means of pegs which are placed over the stem of the runner. Or, if desired, the runners may be trained to take root in pots.
