Picking strawberries in Koreaís winter

As the snowy winter months arrive in Korea, fruit stalls on the streets and in the supermarkets are filled with strawberries and tangerines. These two winter fruits have become very popular with foreigners as well as Koreans. This is because of their extra sweet taste and tender texture. People can go pick them for themselves and see how they are grown on site.

For instance, there is strawberry picking in Yangpyeong. One hourís drive from Seoul, Yangpyeong is a small town in the peaceful countryside. The town is famous for its visitor-friendly strawberry farms offering various farm experiences. Since Korean strawberries are grown in greenhouses with a warm and stable temperature, strawberry farms have become an ideal winter destination for family-unit tourists with kids, according to
