Strawberries

The first ‘Pick-Your-Own’ fruit of the season. Fresh-picked Connecticut-grown strawberries will also be available in our Apple Barrel market.  We grow many different varieties in our orchard, so one (or more) of our tastiest types is sure to please your palate. Strawberry picking is a great family friendly activity!

Strawberries are a delicious source of potassium and Vitamin C, and one cup of berries is only 55 calories.

Come to Lyman Orchards for some fun and pick your own strawberries today!

Season

Early June - Early July

Choosing

Look for vibrant red strawberries, with few green or white areas. The caps and berries should look fresh and clean. Berries should be plump. The size of the berries differs with the variety and is not a sign of flavor or quality.

Ripening

Strawberries, unlike many other fruits, do not ripen after they are picked. So, be sure to pick only the berries that are brightly colored red, and fully matured.

Storing

Strawberries are very perishable; handle gently. Protect berries from direct sunlight, especially when traveling in the car for a long time. Store in a cool place and rinse berries just before use. Remove stems after berries are washed. Use the ripest berries first.

Freezing

Simply wash and drain well on paper towel. Place in freezer on cookie sheet single layered. After frozen, store in containers.
