Green Bluff growers enjoy bumper strawberry crop after cold, wet spring

In the midst of strawberry season, Green Bluff growers are reaping the benefits of a wet spring. Jason Morrell, owner of Walters’ Fruit Ranch, calls this year’s strawberry haul ‘unprecedented’. "All the strawberry growers, it’s been nuts with how bumper of a crop we’ve had."

A bumper crop, meaning an unusually large harvest–and in this case, it’s strawberries. The early rain combined with recent heat has strawberries as far as the eye can see ready to be picked.

If there’s been any negative impact from this spring’s rain, Morrell said it might be on his cherry crop–which may be a little lighter than normal this year. "I would give up the little bit of cherries we lost for the amount of strawberries we have this year," he said.
