Afflictions
:
Resistant to leaf scorch, powdery mildew, and drought.  
Susceptible to leaf spot and strawberry viruses.  Somewhat susceptible to verticillium wilt.  Probably susceptible to red stele, but may have resistance to one strain.
controversy: the flavor is highly reliant on the climate and may be of average quality in the east, at least on some years.  Marshall is primarily grown in the west, where it is reported to produce high quality berries.  Fairfax is another old variety with good flavor that is better adapted to the east, but it, too, is quite difficult to find.

Quinault can produce berries on unrooted runners, which is supposedly a unique trait.  It is said to be useful for potted strawberries, since the runners have nowhere to root, but this is likely nullified by more productive varieties.  "If" it is a frequent occurrence, it could be used for ornamental purposes.
