Chris Parisi’s Pick of the Week
Queensland supplies the winter production of strawberries for Australia, with the season running from May to October each year. There are approximately 150 strawberry growers in Queensland, covering over 600 hectares of land.
It’s important to remember when picking strawberries not to worry about the shape or size. Small berries tend to be juicier and more flavorful than big berries, but this isn’t always the case. Colour is more important that size! Look for strawberries that are bright red with minimal white around the stem.
