Strawberries are the most popular berry fruit in the world. They’re sweet, they’re beautiful, and they’re good for you. Strawberries rank near the top of all fruits for antioxidants and are a great source of vitamin C and dietary fiber. They're great in smoothies, on breakfast cereals, in desserts, or just by themselves.
Select plump strawberries with a natural shine and rich red color. Look for strawberries that are clean and dry with fresh, unwilted caps (calyx). Avoid strawberries with seedy tips or white shoulders.
Care & Handling
Always refrigerate your strawberries immediately and don’t wash them until you’re ready to use them. We recommend that you keep them in their original container.
Allowing strawberries to reach room temperature before serving will enhance their natural flavor. Gently rinse your strawberries with green caps still on, under cool water. After washing, remove the caps.You can easily freeze berries – just wash, cut the caps off, pop them into a ziplock bag, and remove as much air as possible. The frozen berries will keep for many months.
