Hydroponics method is being practised for cultivating some crops aside from strawberries which include tomatoes, capsicums and other herbal plants since they adapt well to the cool tropical highlands weather. Strawberry farms are practically everywhere in the highlands as the weather here is suitable for its cultivation. These farms are opened for visitors making them one of the popular tourist attractions in CH.
It is believed that over 40,000 pots are grown here in this farm. Some strawberry farms offered self-plucking berries and you need to pay accordingly to the amount you've plucked. We didn't go to one of those farms though.
unripe berries dangling from the stems. Although these berries seem to be slightly smaller than the ones in Europe, they are just as exquisitely sweet and juicy.
Rows of lettuce (Red coral, Green coral, Butterhead, Romaine) being grown hydroponically on this farm as well.
Aside from the hydroponic farm, there were abundance of potted plants and cactus available for sale at the nursery.
We bought some strawberries home and this is exclusively the right dessert to end this post on a sweet note. Bright ruby red, juicy, berrylicious and packed with flavour, I savoured every berry, especially as it has been months since my last eaten berry. They serve more than just satisfying the sweet tooth. :)
