Farmers' Market Report March 7, 2014


Green Strawberries
Grower: Black Sheep Produce

Description: Green strawberries exhibit the youth of any given red strawberry variety that has been plucked before maturity. Thus their color is pale green with slight pink blushing and trademark seeds lining the skin in hues of green and red. The flavor of green strawberries is lean and tart, displaying notes of refreshing acidity. Their flesh is also less juicy, slightly cottony and firm.
