First Berries are Picked

Stevie just got her first taste of this season’s Florida strawberries. Her Papa brought her his first ripe berry right from our field.

Most of the growers in Florida are picking the Radiance variety of strawberries right now. This is one of the varieties coming from the University of Florida.

This is the third year for Radiance to be in production. It has been a favorite of farmers because of its early harvest, its firmness and the fact that it ships so well. Radiance also has a wonderful flavor!

From my family to yours, we wish everyone a “berry” good Thanksgiving!
