Caring for your Strawberries

 

Strawberries are very perishable and need to be handled gently

 

  • Protect the berries from direct sunlight & intense heat, especially in your vehicle.

  • Store berries in tightly sealed container such as tupperware in your refrigerator as soon as possible.

  • Do not wash or clean your berries until you are ready to use them.

  • Wash the berries in cold water.  DO NOT SOAK them.  They will become water-logged.

  • Do not stack berries more than 3 layers high in container to prevent crushing.

  • Use berries in 3 days or less.  Our berries are much softer and juicier than berries from the grocery store,but that means they must be eaten faster.
