Grower: Strawberry crop 'very, very good'

Written by

EAST CORINTH - Due to the cold, wet spring, the strawberry season in Maine began a bit later than normal this year.

But with the recent warm weather, the berries are ripe and ready and the season could last through the end of July.


The folks at Adams Strawberry Acres in East Corinth said that considering how the season began, it's been very good so far.


"The quality has been really, really good. We've had really good picking, we've still got some picking out there. They're smaller but there's still a lot of berries out there and with the heat we've had, they're really sweet," said berry grower Bill Adams.


According to Adams, raspberries are nearly ready for picking and the blueberries will be ready in a few weeks.


New potatoes, squash and pickling cucumbers will also be available soon, he said.
