Queensland strawberries are at their absolute sweet best for quality and value, you can’t go past them. Our strawberries are grown in the Sunshine Hinterland just north of Brisbane. Strawberries love cold nights and warm days, so it’s the perfect place to grow sweet, juicy berries. Strawberries are rich in vitamin C, folate, low in natural sugars and kilojoules and are packed with beneficial flavonoid antioxidants. They're also a source of fibre for digestive health and potassium for better blood pressure. Pick up a couple of punnets this week for your breakfast.
HOW TO PICK
Choose red, evenly coloured strawberries with green stems.
HOW TO STORE
As strawberries have a high moisture content, remove fruit from the punnet and place in a large container or plate lined with absorbent paper. Strawberries are best stored at 4C. Bring them to room temperature to serve.Store in the fridge for 2-4 days.
