How to Choose the Best Berries

How to Choose the Best Berries

Planning on buying some berries? Then it’s time you knew the basics.

When they’re ripe:

  • Blueberries: Late May – October
  • Blackberries: June – August
  • Raspberries: May – September
  • Strawberries: April – June

Look for berries that are:

  • Deeply colored (especially blackberries and raspberries)
  • Tinged with a frosty-white color (only blueberries)
  • Free of mold or brown patches
  • Firm and plump
  • Able to move freely in their container when you give ‘em a little shake

How to Choose the Best Berries

Store them:

  • In the fridge, loosely covered and consume them as soon as possible, as they only last 3-5 days max
  • And wash only just before consuming
  • In the freezer (see here for directions)
