The production of early strawberries is an important part of the strawberry industry in Los Angeles and Orange counties. Winter-planted (about November 1) strawberry plants produce earlier fruit but give lower total yield for the season than do summer-planted strawberry plants. In the 1964-65 season, many growers winter-planted the Fresno instead of the Lassen variety for its improved fruit quality.
