One Toronto specialty store is selling some extremely rare Spanish strawberry varieties, introducing the one-and-only Borga strawberries, available to you by the good people at Cheese Boutique, who specially orders the berries from all the way from Spain.
While the price tag on these little red jewels is pretty hefty ($27.99 for a crate), owner Afrim Pristine says they are worth every single penny. "They are exactly what you want a strawberry to look, smell and taste like," he stated. Not only is their color incredibly vibrant and their shape perfectly plump, but Pristine also says the smell is actually "intoxicating."
Bringing in the Borja berries for three years now, he says getting them to Canada isn't really that hard, thanks to his great supplier.
