EtymologyEdit

Uncertain, perhaps from Basque mart- (blackberry; bramble), as in martotx (bramble), martsuts ~ martuza (blackberry). Basque also gave Aragonese martuel, Catalan maduixa (strawberry). Similar sense development in Galician amorogo, Portuguese morango (strawberry), both from amora (blackberry; bramble). Replaced now dialectal (a)borto, from Old Spanish alborco, from Latin arbutus. Compare Portuguese medronho.
