NONSAN, South Korea, Jan. 10 (Korea Bizwire) – Two strawberry farms in Nonsan, South Chungcheong Province, have been harvesting giant strawberries dubbed “King’s Berries”.
The farmers started cultivating the fruit in September after completing a pilot project in 2015. The large berries weigh about 30 grams each, and are twice as large as typical strawberries, even bigger than an average-sized egg.
The average sugar content in the berries is about 9.8 degrees Brix, higher than usual strawberries that normally come in between 9.3 to 9.6 degrees Brix.
The giant berries are juicier, and have a subtle scent of peach, officials said.
