How to properly store strawberries?

1 min read

Soft and sweet strawberries require special care and storage to stay after purchase. If you plan to eat strawberries right away, the best option is to store them at room temperature on the kitchen counter, however, if you want to extend their life, the refrigerator is the best choice.

Do not wash strawberries in advance if you do not want to eat them right away. Strawberries will stay fresher when dry and cool, and any extra moisture will soften them and encourage mold growth. So wash strawberries only when you plan to eat them.

Keep green stalks in fresh strawberries when storing them in the refrigerator. Untouched streams will protect the inside of the strawberries and extend their life.

When stored properly, strawberries will stay fresh for about a week.21Media
