It’s that time of the year again! It’s Strawberry picking time. It’s finally that time to pick some delicious strawberries and make a pie or just eat them.
Central Florida has some great strawberry fields and of course we also have the Strawberry Festival, which occurs every year in Plant City, FL.
Strawberry season usually occurs from December to March in Florida, but the months may vary in other states. Due to the warm weather in Florida, Strawberry season comes early and allows us Floridians to pick some delicious strawberries, while most states still deal with snow.
