The Instacart guide to strawberries
Known for their deliciously sweet taste, bright red color, and succulent texture, strawberries are a popular household staple, and for good reason. They are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber, making them a heart-healthy snack for anyone looking for a nutritious treat. A single cup serving of strawberries contains fewer than 50 calories, approximately three grams of dietary fiber, and more vitamin C than an orange.
Because strawberries are relatively easy to grow in any climate, they are harvested all over the world. Of all the countries, the United States ranks first in strawberry production, with the top producing states being California, Florida, North Carolina, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. You may find that your strawberries taste slightly different depending on which region they are grown in. There are three types of strawberry plants from which berries are commonly harvested.
- June-bearing: This type of strawberry plant is only harvested once a year, typically during the month of June. They produce buds in the fall which transform into flowers and fruits the following summer. Warmer climates tend to produce strawberries at an earlier date.
- Ever-bearing: This type of plant forms buds during the summer and fall, resulting in a strawberry harvest the following spring. They can start producing berries as soon as there are 12 hours of continuous daylight.
- Day-neutral: A day-neutral plant will produce fruit continuously throughout the season until the first frost hits. They have three peak periods, which usually take place in early June, mid-July, and late August.
