Ag officials: strawberries about 2 weeks behind


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Although we haven't had much of a summer yet with all the wet weather, a local business is opening up Wednesday and providing what many consider a summer staple.

Firefly Berries will open for the season Wednesday, and officials say they will be offering a luscious strawberry crop.

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture says the strawberry crop across Minnesota is about 2 weeks behind schedule.

Berry growers, though, are reporting fields full of big blossoms.

Officials say peak season for berries this year will be the first week of July, just in time for the 4th of July holiday.
