When to Enjoy

Florida strawberries are at their sweetest, juiciest best from January through March. When it comes to getting the best-tasting strawberries, timing is key. And Publix knows this better than anyone. That’s why we only work with a small selection of Florida growers who make sure each handpicked strawberry meets our high standards. This means you get a deep red color, firm texture, the perfect size, and of course, a sweet taste.



  • Eat them as soon as you can!
  • Refrigerate no longer than three days.
  • For best flavor, allow berries to come to room temperature.
  • Just before eating, rinse with cool water, then remove the green caps with a sharp paring knife, or by a sharp twist.
