I received my shipment of strawberries from Harry & David, and I was delighted with the quality of the fruit. Each strawberry had its own special padded section within the box. So not only did the strawberries arrive perfectly ripe and without a bruise to be found, they were also a great size. There were no dinky little strawberry babies to be found. Each strawberry was a big super-sized strawberry, firm to the touch, brightly red in color, with thick strong stems.
In the spring, when strawberries are at their peak, I’ll often go to the super-sized stores and buy large containers of strawberries. All of them look great, but once you get them home and open the carton, you realize that half (or more) of the strawberries have gone bad already. Their squishy brown flesh betrays the life of the other strawberries and before you know it, all the strawberries are good for nothing. So frustrating! More than that, though, is the amount of money that just got thrown away with the bad batch of strawberries.
I was so happy to note that the strawberries from Harry & David were firm and fresh. Not one bad one in the bunch. Although the size of the box seemed smaller compared to the other shipments, and I thought for sure that the strawberries wouldn’t last long because it seemed like there were fewer than I expected, the more I took out of the box, the more I realized I had. Also, because every strawberry was large in size, and there weren’t any bad spots, the result was a nice big bowl of beautiful strawberries; plenty to go around, with none wasted!
