The Favored Strawberry Previous Broadcasts

KQED Plus: Wed, Jan 17, 2018 -- 11:00 AM

What could be sweeter than a freshly picked strawberry? Scarlett and sumptuous, and grown on a crown of green, this masterpiece among plants begs to be savored. Once a seasonal fruit, strawberries are desired and available year round, from sub tropical winter fields in the heart of central Florida, to sweeping ranches along the shores of Monterrey Bay, California. They're grown on the windy plains of Texas and in the dirt of old Carolina tobacco plantations-in the flint rock hillsides of Oklahoma and on "you-pick-em" farms in New Jersey, and lots of places in between. The Favored Strawberry was filmed in 8 states, including Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Florida, New Jersey, North Carolina, Maryland and California. The story unfolds at farms, big and small, where strawberries are picked by hand, by hard working immigrants chasing the American dream.
