      Douglas,
      I don’t know of any retail nurseries in the US that will ship bare root strawberry plants to Brazil. I suggest trying to find a local nursery near your home and ask them if they can assist you or suggest another variety that performs well in your climate.

      Good luck and let us know what happens.
