Bumper strawberry harvest expected

More than 3,000 tons of strawberries in Jinshan District are almost ready to be picked and a bumper winter harvest is expected.

The Jinshan Strawberry Festival, which will run to March 3, is already in full swing. Visitors can pick fresh, juicy strawberries with prices ranging from 30 yuan (US$4.80) to 40 yuan per 500 grams.

Urban day-trippers can tour around the Jinshan Strawberry Research and Development Center and learn how farmers grow the tasty berries. Those so inclined, can purchase a mini strawberry pot and grow them at home.

“We have treated the soil and seeds in advance,” said Gu Baogen, the center’s director. “With regular daily watering, strawberries are easy to handle at home.”

Other activities for the festival include a strawberry photograph contest, opportunities for children to learn how to grow the fruit at home and matchmaking activities in the strawberry orchards.
