Keep in mind that our strawberries have a much shorter shelf life than the berries in stores that were shipped across the country. However, we have a much better flavor and texture. Here’s some tips to keep your berries fresh:
Store berries in a 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.
Do not stack berries more than three layers high in a container to prevent squishing.
Use berries within three days or less. Our berries are much softer and juicier than berries in the grocery store, but that means they must be eaten quickly.
Do not leave your berries in your car for a long time. If you are planning on spending the day with us, pick your berries last before leaving. If possible on your way home, put them by a vent with the air conditioner turned on. The faster you can cool your berries, the longer they will keep.
