Tips

  • Eat soon after purchase, or store unrinsed berries in the refrigerator. Blueberries last five to six days. Strawberries last up to three days. Blackberries and raspberries should be handled gently and refrigerated no more than two days.
  • Rinse and drain berries right before serving (not earlier).
  • Allow berries to come to room temperature for fullest flavor.
