Strawberry Lovers………….

Strawberries may be available through the year, but they should ideally be bought and stored during winters. It is the perfect season to cherish its fresh flavor. So one of the most important factors to look out for buying these berries is to find them during winters. One of the best indicators of a stale strawberry is its smell. The freshest berries are the most fragrant. If you find its smell slightly mushy and unpleasant, do not buy them.
