Strawberry prices to drop this season

leave a comment »

The cold weather that froze over the Florida orange crop and spiked OJ prices has caused strawberry prices to drop. The Florida berry crop was forced to be harvested later and is now competing with the California strawberry crop. Supply-and-demand, folks. Increased supply means lower prices.

Expect a pound of strawberries to go for $1.25 or so.

This month the Svalbard Global Seed Vault will become the most diverse collection of food crop seeds on the planet. Its basically a global failsafe incase our stupid leaders decide to blow up the world or something and all vegetation ceases to exist.

check out pics and TED video for more info.
