How to Pick the Best Fresh Strawberries

May 20, 2015

Choosing the best of our fresh strawberries is easy when you know what to look for! The top four items you should consider when picking up strawberries are:

  • Color is important. Look for a deep red color. Though be aware that strawberries can continue to redden after they are picked.
  • Smell is even more important than color. Sweet and ripe strawberries will have a strong strawberry scent to them.
  • Don’t worry about the shape of a strawberry.;A batch of berries that are all the same size and shape probably indicates they were bred to be that way.
  • Don’t worry about size.Small berries tend to be juicier and more flavorful than big berries, but this isn’t always the case.  Color is more important than size.
