Best strawberries ever

bizzwriter Jul 4, 2010 02:21 PM

Made an early morning run to Chino Farms today to pick up a dozen ears of white corn. Ended up buying a bunch of other stuff too -- it all looked and smelled so great. I couldn't resist a couple containers of strawberries, including a French variety. REMARKABLE taste -- like eating strawberry candies. Best strawberries ever, picked at the peak of perfection, and worth the trip for these alone. Have a happy 4th!

    I agree those French strawberries are amazing. I've been back four times in the last two weeks just for those.

      Is the farm stand open during the week? I would love to get some tomorrow.

          Thanks for the info! I have only been there a couple of times, almost by accident. I work in Sorrento Valley, so there's no excuse, other than the aforementioned cash, to stop me from going now.
