Florida strawberry season has officially begun

Tis the season for strawberries.

It’s the beginning of strawberry season, and spots of red have begun to pop up over in the strawberry fields in Dover. With the upcoming annual Florida Strawberry Festival, the star of the show is expected to have a productive season, which is typically between Thanksgiving and Easter.

Florida cold snaps are actually good for the strawberries, and makes them bigger and sweeter. The strawberries can now be found at local supermarkets, and outside the market.

Charley went strawberry-picking, and met with the fine folks from the Florida Strawberry Growers Association to talk about this year’s crop and share a couple of recipes.
