Louisiana Heritage Strawberries
The Klondike, Daybreak, Headliner, and Tangi strawberries are all varieties that were traditionally cultivated in Louisiana. These heritage varieties have a higher sugar content than typical commercial strawberries. In southern Louisiana, particularly in the southeastern parishes of Tangipahoa and Livingston, many farmers have cultivated strawberries with other fruits for over a century.
The Tangi strawberry is currently being cultivated by Henry Amato, a farmer in Tangipahoa Parish. Mr. Amato employs traditional methods and grows the berries on mulch beds of locally gathered pine needles as opposed to black plastic.
