Strawberries are now back in season and have started making their way onto supermarket shelves and at your local markets. June-October/November is the perfect time for Strawberries, and are their best during the peak season.
Some farms allow you to pick your own strawberries, a great novelty for adults and children alike. Why not take the family for a day out to enjoy seeing how they grow and taste them fresh from the field.
Here is a list of Queensland Suppliers that offer beautiful Strawberries fresh to the public. Queensland Strawberries has more useful information available on their website including Strawberry recipies.
