STRAWBERRY fields forever – we have them in our garden

STRAWBERRY fields forever – we have them in our garden
I was surprised to know that strawberry is a good source of vitamin C which we need for the strong immunity of our body against diseases. But strawberry grows only in cool places because it wilts under the heat of the sun. That is the reason why strawberry is expensive in tropical countries. Early this year we were able to buy planting materials of Hawaiian strawberry that is sturdy against the weather and can even grow in a hot climate. The 2 strawberry shrubs grew fast and we were euphoric when they had berries that tasted just like the common strawberry. After the fruiting the shrubs developed “runners” which are the planting materials. Now we have a strawberry patch that will supply us of fresh strawberries from time to time.

Great to know some useful information about Strawberries. Now, I know why they are expensive in my country. You are lucky to have a strawberry patch you I guess, now just take good care of it, water it regularly and it will fetch you rewards in the future. Strawberries are grown in cold areas such as the northern parts of Europe and America and that is from where they are imported.

Wow! I want to have that kind of strawberry. I want to try to plant it in our backyard and hope that I can cultivate it to grow and bear fruit. It was amazing that there was a species of strawberry that could grow even in the the hot climate. Thanks for sharing this amazing information.

STRAWBERRY fields forever-we have them in our garden: I eat strawberry but not that like some other fruits because the taste for me is something weird or it is because I didn't try too eat that much before because of its price. I am a plant lover because we used to plant since my father is a farmer, and I want to plant a strawberry also even I don't like it that much and I am sure that my parents will love it. But I think strawberry in our lace is not possible to grow because of the type of the soil and climate but still I try it.

Wow! that's cool. I remember I used to plant petchay or snow cabbage before, not only that but papaya. I was very happy when I saw those plants blooming most especially my papaya plant. It has fruit and it was very tasty and sweet. It would be good if I could try the straw berry one as this is one of my favorite fruit and flavor in shake and cakes.

Was it hard growing snow cabbage? I plan on trying planting vegetables that we usually eat or ones that we regularly use as ingredients in our backyard. My only experience with planting is the Sunflower that I was able to successfully grow. Well, back to strawberries, I am not really fond of them but my family loves them and always make it a point to bring them home when going to places where they are available.

I also like strawberries due to there sweetness and tanginess. However we are not able to grow Strawberries at my home due to the hot weather in my State. There are other states in my country where Strawberries are grown in abundance, therefore we are able to buy Strawberries in the local markets. Having Strawberries grow at your home must be an amazing experience.

My family and I have strawberry patches planted in our garden as well. We’ve had the same strawberry plants for about three years now, but the fruit they’re starting to bear has been steadily declining in quality, so we’re probably going to have to get to work on a new patch soon. That being said, I absolutely love strawberries and always cannot wait for strawberry season. I was also surprised to find out that they’re absolutely loaded in Vitamin C. As it turns out, per 100g serving, strawberries actually have more Vitamin C than most citrus fruits! Peppers are a great source of Vitamin C as well.

What type of strawberry do you have there in your patch? Is it the same as the OP? I got curious because my sister and father loves strawberries and I am thinking of telling them about this hawaiian strawberry and help them with planting one. I didn't know that peppers are a great source of vitamin C as well, I just know that i like them as an ingredient on almost all my food. Apparently, my vitamin C knowledge is lacking. Haha.

Congratulations on your small strawberry patch! Are the strawberries sweet? It's always nice to know about gardening success stories because honestly I have a hard time with my plants. I seem to always forget to plant them specially when I'm busy with an article. Good luck! Hopefully it grows to be a plantation soon!

Wow! Congratulations on the strawberries! I actually didn't know that strawberries are rich in vitamin C. It is rare and the price is not that affordable here in my area that is why I have not developed the habit of eating it. Surprised that there is such a thing as a hawaiian strawberry that can withstand a tropical climate. Thank you for sharing the information.
