STRAWBERRIES, THE YEAR SIX, AND BERNARDO O'HIGGINS
One old British cookery book of mine mentions the fact that the modern strawberry is a result of the hybridisation of a Chilean variety with that of an English one, in 1806. We've already touched upon the significance of this statement with regards to the crop at Donwell Abbey over on the Emma Board. But after I got a silly picture of the Desert covered with little red dots out of my head, I started to wonder if old Captain Wentworth had been involved in strawberry-trafficking , too, in the year 'six. Wasn't that the year all hell broke loose in S America ? Could any one expand on the events of the Revolutions and the role of the British Navy in them, please?
