  • For best flavor and texture, plan to eat or freeze strawberries very soon after picking.
  • To store for 1 to 3 days, refrigerate without washing or removing the green cap. Keeping the berries dry helps delay spoilage.
  • Wash strawberries under cool running water just before serving. Drain. Remove caps by twisting or cutting them off.
  • For longer storage, freeze cleaned, whole berries on a baking sheet. When firm, transfer to a freezer bag or container. Label and date. Use within a year for best quality.
