Strawberries

Nothing says summer like strawberries. Fortunately, they can be enjoyed all year long thanks to advanced growing, shipping and storage techniques. Truly a gift of nature, strawberries are one of the most beloved and versatile fruits. One cup contains about 45 calories and is an excellent source of vitamin C and flavonoids. Look for stems and caps that are fresh and firm. The berry should be plump with a nice red finish. For best results, eat within 2 - 3 days after purchasing.
