Each stigma must receive pollen in order to develop a large, well-formed berry and some farmers bring bee colonies in to help pollinate* One of the reasons why Florida strawberries are so highly regarded is the state’s ideal growing conditions. The combination of fertile soil, warm days and cool nights creates the perfect balance for the strawberries to ripen slowly, ensuring an exceptional taste and sweetness.Try one of our beautiful jars of Strawberry Jewel Jam.
