Things To Do » Strawberry Picking

Long Island Strawberry Picking

Strawberries are among the most popular fruits around and for good reason—they’re delicious in their own right and make for some fantastic jams, jellies, preserves, ice cream, cakes, and other delectable dishes. Here on Long Island strawberry season coincides with the arrival of warmer weather and the transition from spring to summer, as the fruit grow and ripen throughout May and June. If you want to bite into the freshest, juiciest strawberries around, your best bet is to go to one of Long Island’s many farms where you can pick your own; just remember not to pluck any green ones as they will not ripen off the vine.
