The only way to know the true taste of a strawberry is to go to “Pick Your Own” farms or grow them yourself. Strawberries really are ambrosia of the Gods if you pick them yourself when they are at their peak of flavor.
Supermarket berries have no resemblance to these freshly picked berries at all. They tend to be tart with grainy texture; this is because the natural sugar in the berries begins converting to starch as soon as it is plucked from the plant. Therefore you are getting a completely different product when you buy a commercially produced berry from the grocery store.
It’s definitely worth your while to try growing some strawberries this season and the good news is that they are relatively easy to grow if you have full sun. To learn more about how to plant and care for strawberries, click on the next page link below:
