Last fall, Costanoa Commons farm planted 600 Albion strawberry plants. Today, our plants are producing about 60-75 pints of fruit, about 50 pounds, every week!
These berries were developed for the California grower and are very sweet, firm, and often large. They require a regular fertilizing regimen and, thanks to our friends at AgroThrive, our berries get a steady diet of organic nutrients that protect our plants and help them bear steadily throughout the season.
Chris, our strawberry guru, has done a great job with these treats, and everyone who tastes them agrees that they are delicious.
We prefer to sell them straight off the plants at our Saturday farm stand since we find their flavor to peak when eaten at room temperature and not chilled. However, Albions also freeze well so feel free to stock up while the gettin’ is good!
