Strawberry Fields Forever

vegetarian strawberries

Ripe and ready for the picking!

Expe­ri­ence fresh picked sun-ripened strawberries!

Spring in Florida is ideal, espe­cially if you’re a straw­berry lover. They’re cel­e­brated and immensely enjoyed in abun­dance all spring long.
I recently had the plea­sure of vis­it­ing Pappy’s Patch U-Pick Straw­ber­ries in Oviedo, FL. It was just 25 min­utes North East of Down­town Orlando. There were rus­tic, hand-made signs to lead the way once we were close to straw­berry pick­ing heaven.
There was plenty of free park­ing inside a fenced area near the fields. We parked and walked up to a red trailer. A friendly man and woman greeted us (I’m assum­ing they were the own­ers.) The woman asked us how we would be using the straw­ber­ries. We said for “eat­ing fresh,” she handed us a box for our sun-ripened finds and showed us the best area of the field for pick­ing that day.
The straw­ber­ries were abun­dant, red, ripe and juicy. There were so many per­fect look­ing straw­ber­ries, we ended up (unin­ten­tion­ally) pick­ing 6 pounds! They were a lit­tle more expen­sive ($2.25 pound) verses the gro­cery store straw­ber­ries (approx­i­mately $1.67-$2 pound) for this time of year in Florida. Over­all though, the expe­ri­ence of pick­ing my own per­fect lit­tle berries, the incred­i­ble fla­vor and the much longer shelf life of the field fresh straw­ber­ries could never com­pare to the crammed, mys­tery qual­ity plas­tic boxes of berries at the gro­cery store.
