They’re Big, But How Do They Taste? http://wfae.org/post/mutant-strawberries-they-re-big-how-do-they-taste <p>Portions and foods in general are getting bigger and bigger, but this is ridiculous. My fiance brought home some freak, mutant strawberries last week. I had to share the photo because I didn&rsquo;t know you could actually buy strawberries this big. I thought they were the subjects of &ldquo;whoa, look at that thing&rdquo; ribbons at the state fair or perhaps B- horror movies (Attack of the Killer Strawberries?) Is this the result of some kind of nuclear radiation or genetically modified seeds grown with steroid fertilizer? I decided to investigate.</p> Wed, 25 Apr 2012 04:00:00 +0000 Erin Keever 2640 at http://wfae.org Mutant Strawberries! They’re Big, But How Do They Taste?

If, like me, you enjoy strawberries in their many delicious concoctions, rejoice! Thanks to a La Nina winter the strawberry crop will come early and abundantly in most areas of the state according to the North Carolina Strawberry Association.</p> Mon, 02 Apr 2012 17:27:30 +0000 Jennifer Lang 2719 at http://wfae.org Strawberries Arrive Early
