Strawberries are a great buy right now in grocery stores. The best prices I have seen are $1/pound, but most places are under $1.50/pound. According to the news, this is because Florida and California strawberries are hitting the stores at the same time this year. In a few weeks the local berries will be in season also. Get ready for some good eating!
Strawberries are naturally high in fiber, vitamin C, folate, potassium, and antioxidants, and they’re low in calories and practically fat- and sodium-free. Ounce for ounce, strawberries have more vitamin C than citrus fruit.
Strawberries are perishable so you have to choose carefully and protect your investment once you get them home.
