What makes you say that? Admittedly I haven't tried to buy any recently....

For the ones you torture and refuse to kill even though they're obviously in pain, yes.

Nonsense, sir!

In May, I had the most delicious strawberries I've ever tasted (from a farm shop in Devon) and last weekend, a small market in Suffolk was the source of similarly excellent strawberries.

Meh, pretty much all the ones that I've bought this year, from all kinds of places have either been rock hard, or siggy as hell and gone mouldy in a day or so.

I've been boycotting the hard, wooden Driscoll's USA strawberries in the supermarket (an easy boycott because they're more like turnips than strawberries). However our local shop only started selling Irish strawberries in mid September, so it's been a lean year for them for me.
