In India, the strawberry season generally runs from November until April - with January and February being the best months to enjoy fresh strawberries due to the warmer temperatures. During peak season, the most flavorful and vibrant strawberries are produced. This is when Indian farmers start harvesting strawberries for commercial sale.
Strawberries become available earlier in some areas of India due to the weather conditions. For example, they can be found as early as December in areas with cooler temperatures like Nilgiris and Ooty. In regions with tropical climates like Karnataka or Maharashtra, strawberries can become available sooner than in other areas of the country.
It's also important to know that each variety has its harvesting period depending on its growth cycles and ripening time; some might take longer than others to be ready for harvest. So even during peak season, you'll find different strawberries harvested at different times of the year.
If the climate is exceptionally mild, we can enjoy the sweet flavor of fresh strawberries year-round - grow them inside a poly house or greenhouse! This will help maintain temperature and humidity levels that are perfect for proper strawberry cultivation. You'll never be short on supply during the peak winter months.
So while there is no specific harvest season locally, you can enjoy delicious, seasonal strawberries all year in an enclosed space like a poly house or greenhouse.
From commercial poly house or with your personal poly house, you can enjoy ripe, juicy Strawberries throughout India during any month you desire!
