Taste the summer with the strawberries supplied by our De Guijt hero John van Rooij from Gemert. John’s strawberries are extremely tasty. His secret? He allows the strawberries to ripen on the plant as long as possible! During the season, which lasts from mid-April until the end of October, John harvests 120.000 kg of strawberries. This summer treat is at its best in July. Are the leaves loose, are the seeds separated from each other and is the fruit ruby red with a glossy finish? That’s when the strawberry tastes the sweetest. Strawberries are rich in Vitamin C, folic acid and fibre. Tip: Only remove the leafy top after washing or else the strawberry will absorb water like a sponge! Come and taste this summer sweetness in Fields.
