Sensational strawberries!

Love strawberries? Who doesn’t? Grow them yourself and get set for unrivalled flavour, juiciness and all-round indulgence, says Benedict Vanheems

Succulent and sun-warmed strawberries need no introduction. They’re the epitome of summer, when life is sweet – and so are the strawberries! For a country so obsessed with these buxom berries you’d think we could do a lot better than the bland, sometimes wince-inducing bullets sold in the supermarkets. (And how often have you picked up a punnet only to discover half of them haven’t even fully ripened to red?).

In fairness to commercial growers their priority is resilience and shelf life, which means fruits are necessarily picked very early, before they have reached their zenith of flavour. Gardeners, on the other hand, can go all out on taste and aroma, picking the best varieties to pick at the peak of perfection and devour within minutes. Mmmm… you just know gardengrown strawberries are going to be sublime!

Sweet somethings: sensational strawberries to make you salivate!
