Farm fresh strawberries of Chak Shahzad . Fresh strawberries of Chak Shahzad farms are gaining popularity in Islamabad. To boast sale some strawberry farmers are offering drive in and hand picking the straw berries. Strawberry production increased manifold in Pakistan during recent years as Pakistani people taste switched from traditional fruits over to strawberry.
