Tips before you go
Wear clothes which are easy to take off and put on. The temperature in greenhouses will be
higher than outside and you could sweat a lot. Don’t wear high heels but do bring shoe covers.
Wear trousers that make it easy to bend and kneel down.
Pick purple ones for freshness and juiciness if you consume on the day. Pick red and white ones for a longer preservation period. Don’t squeeze when you pick. Remember to pick the fruit gently.
It is generally safe to eat strawberries directly from plants but it is advised you wash them fi rst. You can bring some bottled water to rinse them if no washing facilities are provided.
