Strawberries - Good Harvest Farm
Good Harvest are berry proud of our Certified Organic strawberries. They are glossy, vibrant and deliciously sweet.
Ripe strawberries are firm and bright with fresh green caps and a sweet aroma. Strawberries taste best at room temperature, that’s why we recommend taking them out of the fridge and let them sit a few minutes before eating…..that is, if they even make it to the fridge in the first place – we have no self-control when it comes to our strawberries!
Strawberries are rich in vitamin C, potassium, folic acid and fibre. These are all essential nutrients that support the body’s daily functioning. Strawberries have powerful antioxidant content and despite being sweet do not rapidly boost a persons blood sugar, making them an ideal choice for those who have diabetes and a safe and delicious addition to any well balanced diet.
