    Strawberry Picking Tips

    Strawberry Picking Tips

    • For longer lasting berries, pick only strawberries that are completely red, plump, and firm. (Berries will not ripen more once they have been picked.)
    • Twist your strawberries off the vine rather than pulling them OR gently pinch the stem of the berry at least 1/4-inch from the berry between your thumb and index finger. Leaving a stem on the berry will help prevent bruising and help yuor strawberries last longer.
    • Be gentle. Strawberries bruise easily.
    • For jams and baking, pick strawberries that are a little more ripe and slightly soft.
    • Don't forget to look under the leaves to find hidden berries.
    • To prevent bruising, don't overfill your containers or try to pack the strawberries down.
    • The best time to pick in the morning or early evening to avoid any damage that the sun might to do you berries.
