NC strawberry growers expect strong season
Question of the Day
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina strawberry growers are expecting a strong season despite the late spell of cold weather.
N.C. Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler said it has been a challenging winter for strawberry growers, but the combination of row covers and irrigation set up those growers for an outstanding season.
Several growers in southeastern North Carolina started harvesting in mid-April. Dexter Hill, marketing specialist with the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, said the peak of the season should arrive around the second week of May.
Piedmont consumers can expect to find the largest supply of berries in the second and third weeks of May. Those in the western part of the state should see berries from the middle of May through the first half of June.
