Do not wash strawberries until you are ready to eat. Moisture will deteriorate the outside of the berries. Line container with paper towels and lay out berries in a single layer. Store refrigerated.
NOTE: Organic Strawberries DO NOT have fungicides on them that protect them from deteriorating like conventional are coated in. Organic Strawberries will only last a few days and will need to have deteriorating berries removed right away so they do not spoil the other berries.
