What are some interesting facts about strawberries?
When picked, strawberries still have part of the stem intact; however, to store them, it is best to wash them and cut the stem off. Strawberries are bright red and sweet when ripe, but unlike other fruits, they don't continue to ripen once they've been picked. If a strawberry is picked when unripe, it can be pickled.
