With its tantalising red flesh and a juicy, sweet, often sour bite, strawberries are many people’s beloved fruit. Have it as a cake, juice it up or dip in in chocolate, strawberries will always taste good. However, aside from its taste, do you know anything else about strawberries?

Special Strawberries

Special Strawberries

Some may know of Japanese white jewel strawberries, a white coloured, sweeter, softer, and bigger version of their red-fleshed counterparts. However, have you heard of pineberry? It is also a white coloured strawberry but has a hint of pineapple taste! You can do a quick search on Google to purchase white jewel strawberries, but you may need to do some digging to buy pineberries.

Health Benefits

Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, B9, potassium and manganese. Vitamin C is an antioxidant beneficial for skin and immune health, while vitamin B9 is essential for cell growth. Potassium helps to regulate blood pressure, nerve signals, muscle contractions and fluid balance. Manganese, meanwhile, plays a role in many of our body processes.


Storage Life

Storage Life

Whole strawberries last between 5 to 7 days when stored in the refrigerator. Strawberries that are mushy, shrivelled, mouldy, or are leaking juice indicate that the strawberries are going bad. If you have too many strawberries and it has been a few days since you bought them, you can make strawberry jam and extend your strawberries shelf life by 1 to 2 weeks.
