 Nutrition & Health

Strawberries are an incredible source of essential vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, folate, fiber, potassium and antioxidants that help keep you and your family healthy. Just eight strawberries have more vitamin C than a medium orange. Strawberries are low in carbs, fat and calories, and studies have shown that they may lower the risk of certain types of cancer.

When picking your perfect berries, look for clean, dry berries that are plump, firm, and fully red. The caps should be green and fresh looking. Avoid bruised or wrinkled berries.  As far as size goes, it doesn’t matter when it comes to sweetness.

Keep the strawberries in their original container and chill them as soon as possible.  When you’re ready to use your berries, rinse gently with the caps still on.  After washing, you can remove the caps.

Naturipe® Farms strawberries are available in a variety of sizes, both organic and conventional, to fit your family’s needs, ranging from 8-ounce to 4-pound containers. We also offer premium long-stem strawberries. Kids and adults alike love to have them dipped in chocolate for an easy and sweet strawberry dessert.

Interesting Fact: Strawberries (sometimes called "inside-out" fruit because the seeds are on the outside) have an average of 200 seeds on each berry. Native Americans were growing strawberries in the 17th century, and the settlers arriving in Massachusetts found them growing in abundance along the East Coast.
