Is it Strawberry Season now?

The simple answer is Yes strawberries are in season today.

As growers we farm strawberries in different climatic regions around Australia which means we can harvest fruit from specific areas in each of the 12 months during each regions own season.

You can check on the label on the punnet to see who has grown your fruit and where the farm is.

Queensland has a predominantly dry winter with warm days and cool starry nights. Strawberries thrive in this climate and with the variation between the maximum and minimum daily temperatures produce berries with great flavour from late May to October.

WA growers farm with a typically Mediterranean type climate. Their predominately sandy soils produce quantities of quality strawberries from later July to December.

Victoria has 90% of its production in the Yarra Valley 40km north east of Melbourne. Just over 100 growers farm this region with production from October to early May.

South Australia’s Adelaide Hills with a mild spring, warm summer days and cool nights encourage great tasting strawberries from October to mid May.

Tasmania’s mild summer produces beautiful berries from November to February with the majority being consumed within the Island state.

NSW production may only be a small part of the Australian supply but our growers supply quality fruit mainly to our local Sydney residents from November to February.
