Thanks for that link, I've been searching for an explanation in vain and even the farmer's wife didn't offer up such good explanations.

I've seen this many times. Most strawberries are now gmo. You can buy organic ones here in NY at farmers markets.

It's actually very hard to find anything on promalin. I had to search the EPA registration number to get any hits that describe what it even is.

Me either and I just read an article yesterday that said strawberries were not GMO. Do you have a link Medusa to an article or study?

we get conjoined fruit here all the time. I remember growing strawberries as a child and almost every plant would have a couple produced from it. We called them the lucky berries! blink.gif

My husband hates the taste of vinegar, so we use a food grade hydrogen peroxide soak for the produce and fresh herbs. Been able to keep the herbs unwilted for two weeks in the fridge!

be careful on how much you use, so to not burn the food!!

I usually soak my fruit and veggies for a little bit, then rinse off and we've never been sick from microorganisms.

I've just eaten a large bowl of cherries and I found only one conjoined piece, but I bought them from the store so this one must have slipped by the vigilant eyes of the pickers.
