STRAWBERRIES GROW IN A CAVITE RESIDENCE
WHEN WE TALK ABOUT STRAWBERRIES, the first thing that comes to mind is the cold temperatures that are usually present in elevated areas such as Baguio and the Mountain Province, which are famous for this crop. This is because strawberries grow ideally in locations that have a temperature of 15 to 26 degrees Celsius.

This piece of information, however, did not stop Jowett Rodriguez, an electrical engineer working in a construction company, from growing strawberries far from the aforementioned areas--in his house in Dasmariñas, Cavite.

“Strawberries are very challenging to grow since [people] claim that it only grows in cold areas. A lot of people discouraged me at first but with the information that I got online, I found out that it’s possible to grow them in warm areas as long as they are properly cared for,” Rodriguez said.

He added that in order to grow these plants, you have to be aware of the essentials that they need in order to not only survive but to bear fruit.

Strawberries (Fragaria × ananassa) are succulent and fragrant fruits that are bright red in color. They are usually obtained from the plant with the same name. It can be eaten raw or processed to create jams, candies, and other sweets.
