State strawberry crop expected to be abundant

Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, CT (AP) -
State agriculture officials are encouraging people to visit Connecticut farms to pick locally grown strawberries.

Agriculture Commissioner Steven Reviczky said the state's strawberry crop is doing well despite recent cool, rainy weather.

The strawberry season in Connecticut typically runs throughout the month of June. However, this year's cool weather delayed the season's start.

Some fields may be damp this weekend and officials say visitors should call ahead for conditions.
