Sometimes A Very Pleasant Surprise


Recommended Posts

Long slow drive.. with many stops and explorations..  over Trans Central yesterday from Tuburan to SM City and back with my good Swiss friend who needed a rest day.  Look what we found.  Fresh Cebu grown strawberries.  Who would have guessed it.  I always thought strawberries grew ONLY in the Baguio area.. 

Not cheap at 180 peso for a small container with maybe 8 strawberries, but definitely the real thing, and fresh and undamaged and not over ripe.  Served with vanilla ice cream the family had a treat last night.

They said they were grown right there by the big I love strawberries sign clearly visible from the road.  But I suppose they might have travelled further.  But fresh enough that they couldn't have travelled too far,

LOOK: Strawberry Farm in Cebu Now a Tourist Spot

A strawberry farm has become a new tourist destination in southern Cebu.

Located in the mountainous barangay of Maloray in the town of Dalaguete, the 1.5-hectare farm has over 6,000 strawberry plants planted inside green houses.

It was in 2014 when the Rebalde family started to plant strawberries. At first, it was just a test to see if strawberries could grow in their area until the plants bore fruits.

They opened the farm to the public last January and with a P50 entrance fee, visitors can enjoy taking photos and picking strawberries.

The farm also sells fresh-picked strawberries for P800 per kilo and strawberry jam for P150 per bottle.

The strawberry farm is open every Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

There is a small village up on top of Mt. Manunggal (near the divide between Cebu City and Balamban) where they grow strawberries. The area is covered by clouds about 90% of the time (as in the clouds are on the ground), so it is effectively a cloud forest and much cooler than anyplace else on the island.

Plenty of strawberries in this area. However, they are of a large variety and not nearly as sweet and wonderful as those that I grew up on.
