Close your eyes and imagine the smell of a perfect strawberry. It’s light, fresh and…what else? If you’re having a hard time conjuring the deeply floral, jammy, caramel-tinged aroma of fresh strawberries, it’s probably because you, like most consumers, rarely get to experience the wonder of a field-fresh strawberry.
There’s no better farm to source the perfect strawberry from than Harry’s Berries, which was founded in Oxnard, CA in 1967. For the sake of the family, the land, the farmworkers and the fruit, Harry’s Berries is organic, so there are no chemical pesticides here. Instead, they interplant the fields with cheerful flowers that ward off berry-loving pests and invite beneficial pollinators. Additionally, the berries don’t come off the vine until the very peak of perfection, so you can expect deep red berries full of flavor every single time.
Two specialty strawberry varieties, Gaviota and Seascape, are the main crops. The vibrant red color and the stop-you-in-your-tracks scent of summer will demand your attention, and you’ll never, ever forget your luscious, juicy first bite. Plump, sugar-sweet Gaviotas beg you to eat each and every one straight out of the basket, and the more nuanced Seascapes have a hint of acidity that makes for incredible pies, shortcakes and jams.
How to store:
Once you get your berries home, transfer them to an airtight container and layer (on top, in between, and on the bottom) with dry paper towels. Be sure not to wash your berries until you’re just about to eat them. According to Harry’s Berries, the fruit can last up to two weeks with this method.Any orders that do not have the appropriate shipping method selected will not be shipped out.
