My hosts in Fresno sent me off with a basket of strawberries from the nearby farm to take to my mom. We just tried them now and they're incredibly ripe and luscious. Deep red in color, red all the way through in fact, these are soft and juicy, quite sweet, and just a spark of tanginess in the finish. I didn't get a chance to visit local landmark, Simonian Farms, this trip, will have to put it on the itinerary for next time.
