If you get a chance to grow them try Camerosas, they are even better than 
properly ripened Chandlers.  I think that refrigeration also affects the 
flavors of strawberries.  When I lived near the strawberry capital of 
Florida I used to buy my berries from a produce stand that prided itself on 
their berries never being refrigerated.  They were great!
