Strawberries are looking great this season

The strawberries are ranging in many different sizes

This photo taken April 7, 2014, shows fresh strawberries in a UC Davis strawberry field in Watsonville, Calif. Douglas Shaw spent his career toiling in the fields in California to grow the perfect strawberry, one that was plump and bright red yet remained sweet even after the long trip to grocery stores across the country. When the professor retired from the University of California at Davis and set up his own strawberry-breeding business, though, he found himself in a legal jam. In a case set for trial in federal court later this month, the university is suing Shaw and his scientific partner, saying they stole the school's intellectual property by taking some of the fruits of their research with them.

FEEDING HILLS, Mass. (WWLP) – Strawberries are ready to be picked, bought, and eaten!

Strawberries this season are looking great! 22News went to Cecchi Farms in Feeding Hills and found that they usually pick the strawberries between June 6th and June 10th. They were many strawberries out on the farm stand to be sold ranging in many different sizes.

Cecchi told 22News that this year’s crop is a lot better than last years. Bobby Cecchi, Cecchi Farms, told 22News, “Actually a lot better this year. Last year we didn’t have the greatest crop but they’re coming in really nice this year, good size.”

The heat helped bring the strawberries out and now with the cooler weather, if it continues to stay like this, the crop will be in great shape.
