Our family loves strawberries. We can probably eat a whole container of them in two days. I like them on my cereal in the morning. Lately though I've been noticing that the strawberries in the stores aren't looking too good. The ones that do look good seem to go bad within a day. What's going on with our strawberries these days? Anyone else notice this problem?

Maybe they are picked unripe and are using gas to ripen them. This often caused the fruit to go bad quickly.

Sometimes I buy the organic ones when they're on sale.

I live in New England so I we normally only have strawberries during the summer. We go picking or buy them fresh from the local farms. In our grocery stores the strawberries come from California so by the time they get to us they are not looking very good and go bad very quickly. You can't beat the fresh picked strawberries, they are huge, deep red and so juicy.

I agree - fresh is the best! Ours come from California too, that's the problem.

Strawberry is one of my favorite fruit. I like the taste and the smell of strawberry. I like most food and drinks with strawberry flavors. Maybe the strawberries that you seen is too ripe or been in the stack room for a longer time that's why they are not in good shape anymore.

my family always has strawberries in the house when they are in season but i havent really noticed a problem with them being bad i find the best way to have them is to cut them up in pieces and put sugar on them and let it melt a little bit and then eat them!!
