With Local Strawberries, Variety Makes a Difference

It's obvious that lettuce comes in all sorts of different varieties. Most people know the difference between Romaine and Boston Bibb. But strawberries? In grocery stores, they pretty much all seem the same. That's not true, though, on local farms. This week on the Local Food Report, Elspeth talks with growers from all over our area about what strawberry varieties they're growing and why.

You can find a recipe for strawberry shortcake on Elspeth's blog, Diary of a Locavore. And you can learn all about strawberry varieties over here.

Audio will be posted later today.
