Scientific Research = The September Strawberry

We have a new fruit & veggie stand just around the corner. Or more correctly, the fruit and veggie stand that has been there for years, has new owners. When Fred and I popped in on Saturday, look what we saw.
(The box was much fuller, but I was nibbling before I got home to take the picture.)

Ontario Strawberries in September! This is a new variety - an ever bearing variety from down near Simcoe Ontario. Near my hometown. There is an agricultural research station near there and I can only imagine that the scientists who work there have developed this ever bearing Strawberry.

How wonderful. Ontario Strawberries until November!!! the fruit stand owner told us. Who would ever have imagined it!
