Here at Strawberry Plants .org, we would like to see everyone with half of a square foot of dirt plant their own strawberry plants and reap their own fresh-picked strawberry harvest. But, life is busy, and most people will end up buying their strawberries off the shelf at a grocery store. This is post is a guide for picking strawberries off the shelf and will help you make the most of your strawberry purchases!
Strawberries Are on Strawberry Plants before They Reach the Shelf!
When purchasing strawberries at a grocery store, it is important to understand from where the strawberries came. They were, of course, most likely grown on strawberry plants in some field somewhere. It is unlikely that the strawberry variety (the specific cultivar) will be listed on the packaging. It is also unlikely that all of the methods used to grow the strawberries will be listed anywhere. That’s too bad.
