Join a group of FSA and Amerifresh Associates as they tour the growing fields in Salinas, Calif., to learn more about the harvesting of lettuce and strawberries.
Our strawberry grower, Bob, expertly explains the entire cycle in strawberry growing that begins in November, then harvests in Salinas from April through the following November.
It takes 21-25 days from flower to ripened berry.
