Interpretive Summary: ‘Marys Peak’ is a new June-bearing (short-day) strawberry cultivar from the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) breeding program in Corvallis, OR, released in cooperation with the Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station. The most outstanding characteristic of ‘Marys Peak’ is its excellent fruit quality as a processed or fresh product. Its flavor, size, firmness, color, and yield are particularly notable. In addition, the combination of large fruit size and an open plant architecture make this plant very efficient to harvest. 'Marys Peak' should be adapted especially to North America's Pacific Northwest and regions with a similar climate. A U.S. plant patent application (S.N. 15/330,507) has been submitted.‘Marys Peak’ is a new June-bearing (short-day) strawberry cultivar from the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) breeding program in Corvallis, OR, released in cooperation with the Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station.
