Robbie Sigona’s Produce Tips: Strawberries

Robbie Sigona’s Produce Tips: Strawberries

Strawberries should be…

  • Fragrant. There’s no denying the strong, sweet scent of a fresh strawberry!
  • Full red in color with little to no green under the calyx (more commonly known as the stem). Fresh strawberries are bright and vibrant with a nice green calyx.

For the best eating experience…

  • Don’t wash strawberries until you’re ready to eat them.
  • For a longer life, store strawberries in the fridge.
  • They do best in an airtight container with a paper towel to absorb any moisture.

Robbie Sigona is our produce buyer. He works with local farmers and scours the market for the very best in fresh fruits and vegetables — some you won’t find anywhere else.
