Dark brown covering strawberry

Asked July 2, 2020, 3:16 AM EDT

  • We had beautiful BIG strawberries in April,May, then stopped producing. Now it's the beginning of July and we have a few,small berries mostly bitten or bad in spots. There are other berries that look like there are green sprouts growing out of each seed on the berry. As they "ripen" or stay on vine longer, the green sprouts turn to dark brown. The entire berry is covered in a dark brown covering.

Thanks for the question. That is mold. Late produced strawberries typically are poor quality and with a large amount of rainfall or humidity will rot on the stem. MP
