Follow this tip to keep strawberries fresher for a longer period of time
When picking strawberries keep the stalks intact, this will preserve freshness keeping your strawberries edible for a longer period.
The same applies to store-bought strawberries. Do not remove their stems until just before you plan to eat them. Another way to keep strawberries fresh is to wash them only just before you plan to eat them.
Strawberries retain water so washing them in advance can cause them to become soggy.
