Strawberry Picking in Maoli

How to Pick Your Own Strawberries in Taiwan
  1. From Taipei Main Station catch a local train to Miaoli (about 2 hours).
  2. Walk outside the station and to the right in front of a convenience store you can catch a local bus to DaHu on the Hsinchu bus line (about an hour).
  3. Once you start seeing some strawberry fields, get off the bus and choose a place.
  4. Instead of picking at the raised bushes where it's pricier, get yourself on the ground and get at the good stuff - it's cheaper and hasn't been picked over. There are regular and organic farms to choose from. Don't forget to eat as many as you put in your basket to get VALUE.
  5. Go back home and eat them as quickly as possible. They will go bad quickly. So eat them fresh, freeze them, or cook with them. Here are some ideas...
