Fresh Berry Care tips:

How to care for your strawberries when you take them home:

  • ONLY rinse berries or remove stems when you are ready to use them; helps retain juices.
  • Protect them from sunlight and store in a cool place.
  • Best when used within 2-3 days after picking.

Berry Freezing Tips:


  • Wash berries and drain in colander.
  • Remove stems and slice (or crush) berries as you stem them.
  • Add sugar to taste (about 3/4 cup sugar to 1qt berries).
  • Mix gently until sugar dissolves.
  • Package in rigid containers and freeze.

From the Field:
