On the average, there are 200 tiny seeds in every strawberry.
Eight (8) medium sized strawberries contain 160% of the U.S. RDA for Vitamin C.
Strawberries are fat-free, low in calories and are a good source of folic acid, potassium and fiber.
Flavor is influenced by growing conditions (e.g. weather), stages of ripeness, when harvested and variety. Size does not determine flavor.
Select plump, firm, fully red berries. Unripe berries will not ripen once picked.
You can easily freeze berries that you can not use right away – just wash, cut the hulls off and pop them into a ziplock bag, removing as much air as possible.
