Strawberry Picking Tips!

- Grasp the stem just above the berry between the forefinger and the thumbnail and pull with a slight twisting motion.

- With the stem broken about one-half inch from the berry, allow it to roll into the palm of your hand.

- Repeat these operations using both hands until each holds 3 or 4 berries.

- Carefully place - don't throw - the fruit into your containers. Repeat the picking process with both hands.

- Don't overfill your containers or try to pack the berries down.

- The strawberry patch can be hot, please pack water, hats, and sunscreen.
