La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda said the municipality will be producing new varieties of strawberries.
The Benguet politiko said that two Chinese strawberry varieties are being checked if they can thrive in the municipality.
Salda said that one of the varieties is called “Snow White” because it produces white strawberries.
“We are on the process of testing whether the Chinese strawberry varieties will be able to thrive in the prevailing situation in the municipality before we will subject the same to tissue culture and the mass production of their runners for distribution to interested farmers,” he said.
Salda also said that farmers from Jin-cheon, South Korea are interested in bring in strawberry varieties from their area.
