How to Keep Strawberries Fresh

Updated: 3/26/19

These tips can help extend the shelf life of your strawberries!

Keep the caps on! This includes the stems and everything. Only cut the tops off when you’re ready to eat the strawberry. Otherwise, it will rot very quickly!

Keep the strawberries dry until you are ready to rinse them.  Avoid storing them in a plastic bag where the moisture can get trapped. If you notice any mold on strawberries in your basket, remove them immediately. This will keep the mold from spreading to the other strawberries. One moldy strawberry doesn’t have to ruin the bunch!
