... our strawberries are pesticide-free. We don't spray our plants with insecticides, fungicides, or herbicides...
... however, we may do some spot spraying on the property, after the season is over, to control thistle and quack grass. This is done very carefully, as it will damage the strawberry plants as well.
... strawberries that are picked before they are ready will turn red but will NOT get significantly sweeter!
... it takes 18 days of ideal conditions to get from blossom to ripe berry.
... funny shaped berries are often from a bug, called the tarnished plant bug, feeding on the blossom and young strawberries.
... we use a machine to plant strawberries (pictured) and can plant as many as 24,000 plants in one day.
