Virginia Farm Bureau Says Strawberry Season Looks Good

1032999_red_and_sweet_1Strawberry season is just around the corner, and berry fans can expect a good, quality crop this year—only a little later than usual.

“The cold has not damaged the plants themselves, but it has delayed their maturity,” said Mike Cullipher, a fruit and vegetable producer in Virginia. “Some of the plants were covered, and those will be on time but the vast majority will be delayed by a week or 10 days. So the same quality—just a littler later.”
