Picking Strawberries in November: University of New Hampshire Researchers Extend NH Strawberry Growing Season
University of New Hampshire researchers working on the multi-state TunnelBerries project were picking day-neutral strawberries in Durham, NH last November. Last year, experiment station researchers harvested strawberries grown in low tunnels for 19 consecutive weeks from mid-July through the week of Thanksgiving. They also found that the low tunnels significantly increased the percentage of marketable fruit, from an average of about 70 percent to 83 percent.
