A tough year for Oregon summer fruit

Strawberries are the quintessential Oregon summer fruit. Due to unusual weather patterns, this year has been a tough one for their flavor and quantity.

Normally, Oregon strawberries are summer’s first calling card, petite, wine-red Hoods and candy-colored Albions heralding the long-awaited return of the sun.  This year, what made it to markets was—in many cases—a flavorless, water-logged shadow of one of the state’s most celebrated berries, courtesy of a surprise April cold snap followed by an exceptionally rainy spring. That weather now threatens to limit fruit supplies into February of 2023, costing the state’s farmers millions of dollars.
