What is the Strawberry Season in Israel?

As I mentioned in Strawberry Picking At Hod HaSharon, the season is winter (usually December until March). And towards the end of this period, some farms allow strawberry picking (self-picking).

Last year we visited Stalbetut (see Strawberry Picking At Hod HaSharon for additional details). And this year we decided to visit The Strawberry and Flower.

Instead of a small basket, you can take a big plastic box suitable for a bouquet. Moreover, you can purchase an additional basket for 20 NIS and an extra package for 30 NIS.

When we entered the flowers section, it reminded me of the Buttercup Picking Festival.
