Strawberries are universally popular and very nutritious. Crystal Valley strawberries are carefully picked from farms in Mexico and the United States so that you can enjoy them fresh all year. Perfectly ripe strawberries are hard to resist but that’s okay since they are packed with vitamins and antioxidants. Studies have shown that they are good for your heart and can help control your blood sugar, so no need to avoid this treat!
Choose strawberries that are firm, bright red, and that have a fresh green cap. Avoid strawberries that are mushy or shriveled.
Wash strawberries with cold water and cut the cap off before eating.
