Here in California, we’re blessed with strawberries year-round, rain or shine. But, from April through July, strawberry season is in full swing. That’s when we get the sweetest, juiciest berries on the planet.

Peak strawberries are also extra nutritious. When you pick up a pack in-season, you get berries that are brimming with even more vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber, manganese, and antioxidants.

California is home to some of the best berry farms on the planet, so it’s no wonder around 80% of all strawberries in the US are grown in our sunny SoCal backyard. As a bonus, our extra-juicy strawberries are sourced from local farms which guarantees sustainability, quality, and value in every pint.

We love eating them by the handful, but cooking with strawberries is our definition of summer fun. To make the most of the season, we’ve gathered five berry-delicious recipes for you to enjoy! 🍓
