Selecting Tips

When purchasing, select berries that are plump, tender, and bright in color. Avoid containers that are damp or stained, which might be signs of overripe fruit. Remove and discard any moldy or mushy berries so mold won’t spread to other berries.

Refrigerate unwashed berries, loosely covered, in a single layer. Heaping them on top of one another can crush the berries.

For strawberries and blueberries, store in the refrigerator up to five days.

For blackberries, raspberries, and boysenberries, store in the refrigerator up to three days.

Health Benefits

They may be little, but boysenberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and cranberries are big on antioxidants. The antioxidants in berries can help your body fight oxidative stress caused by free radicals that can lead to illness.
