Strawberry season starting early this year

Posted: Updated:

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey says that strawberry season is starting early. Growers in the western part of Iowa say their berries will be ready within the week, and in the rest of the state harvest season for strawberries should happen in the next two weeks. This harvest is coming earlier than normal.

"Strawberries are the first fruit crop of the season," Northey said.

"Regardless of where you get your berries, act fast as strawberry season in Iowa only lasts a few weeks."

You can find strawberry growers by visiting on the Fruit and Vegetable Farms Directory or on the Iowa Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association "farm search" page.
