Strawberries Are Coming!

June Is Strawberry Month

Like all fruits, strawberries have a season in which they are most abundant, and in Massachusetts  that begins in mid-June.  Local strawberries are juicy and tender and quite different from the berries you can buy year round from California. 

Buying the Best Berries

Strawberries are a fruit that should be purchased organically or from Massachusetts farms that limit the use of chemicals. For organic farms refer to for your strawberries. 

Go Organic for California Berries

If you buy California strawberries at any time of year, choose organic.  California non-organic strawberries have high concentrations of pesticides that can do more harm than good.
