The Garden State may soon become famous for its strawberries. New Jersey scientists think they’ve produced a berry so tasty it’s patented… As CBS2’s Elise Finch reported Tuesday, agricultural scientists at Rutgers University have been perfecting them for 10 years. The result? The patented Rutgers Scarlet strawberry… “It has certain volatile compounds- in other words compounds that you can smell, compounds that give it that deep, rich strawberry flavor,” said Rutgers Agricultural & Resource Management Agent Bill Hlubik… The Rutgers Scarlet has already won a series of taste tests. The team of mostly current and former Rutgers students tending to the crop say it’s so sweet, they’ll never be able to eat store-bought strawberries again, and neither will you.
