Handley Discusses Healthy but Early Strawberry Crop

University of Maine Cooperative Extension vegetable and small fruit specialist David Handley was interviewed for a Channel 6 (WCSH) report on this year’s strawberry crop, which he said is healthy and early. Handley said locally grown strawberries have more flavor and nutrition because they are allowed to fully ripen before harvest, while berries grown elsewhere and trucked into Maine are picked before fully developed. Channel 7 (WVII) also carried a report.
