"The berry in question has not only the full flavor and form, but the stalk of the strawberry, and has nothing whatever of the raspberry about it. It is a misnomer to defer so far to popular parlance as to call it a bush strawberry, for it does not grow on a bush, but on an upright stalk ; the only difference so far as we can recollect, between the stalk and the creeping vine, being that the former is upright and terminates in a group of stems supporting a cluster of berries. The stalk is in all respects a straw, like that of clover or the vine of the ordinary strawberry, and has no resemblance whatever to the woody fibre and bark of the stalk of the raspberry bush".
