MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Experts say the strawberry crop in Minnesota this year is about two weeks late, but the berries will be delicious.

Normally by the Fourth of July, the season is wrapping up, but not this year.

Paul Hugunin is with Minnesota Grown.

He said there are a few guidelines to follow when going strawberry picking.

“The number one rule is to dress comfortably, and bring some sun screen, and a hat and comfortable shoes,” Hugunin said.

There are 87 strawberry farms in Minnesota. He said you should call first to make sure of the hours of picking.

But when you do get a big basket full, he has a suggestion for you.

“Everybody makes the flag cake for the Fourth of July, you have to have fresh strawberries for it and you can get them from the farm this year,” he said.

Minnesota Grown has a website to find out more.
