When and where to pick & what to make with strawberries

When Available:

mid to late May through mid to late June 

Farmers' Picking Tips
• Only pick a strawberry that is all red. Never pick one with a white or green tip.
• Smaller berries taste just as good as the big ones!
• Strawberries bruise and discolor easily, so handle them gently. Pick from the stem, not the berry.
