Hello Jojo. The Canadian Clonal Genebank (CCG) has this older variety in its strawberry holdings. British Sovereign originated in British Columbia in the 1920's. The  CCG provides germplasm of this sort at no charge to clients. Please e-mail back to me to confirm your request. I need your regular mailing address. The plants will be propagated and shipped next year.

My Aunt grew up on a strawberry farm in Gibsons, British Columbia, on the
Sunshine Coast. Their main crop was British Sovereign. Not Royal Sovereign,
apparently that's different.

I've found references to British Sovereign in a few very ecclectic sites to
do with genome centres and breeding, listed as parents of hybrids back in
the 20s, but nothing about actual plants in an actual location growing.
Perhaps they are extinct!

Has anyone heard of these and/or know of a source for them?

THANKS
