Growers say they got plenty of fruit after a cold snap slowed ripening earlier this year. The increase comes just in time, as the traditional peak season for California strawberries gets underway.

On top of that, the number of strawberry acres is also going up. This year's expected acreage is more than six-percent higher than last year.
