Buying Tips

It is better to choose strawberries that are brightly coloured, big, aromatic and dry without any noticeable bruises. A strawberry is rotten if it becomes soft, brown and oozes juice. You are also advised to wash strawberries right before you eat them. After washing, eat the strawberries as soon as possible as they should not be kept long.

Interesting Titbits
