Irish supplier and producer of fresh fruit Keelings has announced the arrival of the first Irish strawberry harvest of 2020, with punnets now available across supermarkets nationwide. Keelings produces 100% table-top strawberries; a growing-method that keeps the fruit off the ground and helps to eliminate pests and diseases.
Keelings said that its innovative glasshouses have successfully extended the strawberry season from March through to December. This allows for strawberries to be nurtured by the Keelings’ growers all year round and for the first Irish strawberries of the season to be available earlier than was originally possible, the fruit firm explained.
Located in St.Margaret’s, North Co. Dublin the Keelings farm has the capacity to produce over 100 million Irish strawberries annually.
