Selecting and storing

When buying strawberries, look for shiny, crimson red berries. They should be glossy orange-red or deep crimson. The calyx – the leaves at the top of the stem – should be green and fresh. Strawberries are sold ripe and ready to eat.

How to keep your strawberries fresh

Store strawberries in the fridge as soon as possible after purchase. Keep the punnet upright and handle carefully to avoid bruising.

Bring strawberries to room temperature before eating to enjoy the fruit’s fullest flavours.

Always wash strawberries before you eat them. Carefully place them into a colander, rinse under cold water and gently pat dry with kitchen towel.
