Melissa’s Long Stem Strawberries make a wonderful snack as well as a very special dessert ingredient. Very flavorful, Long Stem Strawberries have beautiful deep red coloring with vibrant green stems and leaves.

These California Long Stem Strawberries are preferred for their gorgeous display quality and their excellent sweet summer flavor. Melissa’s Long Stem Strawberries are delicious when eaten out of the hand, mixed in salads, and used in desserts, such as strawberry shortcake. Long stem strawberries are fabulous dipped in chocolate for a rich dessert. For a simple and sweet treat, serve long stem strawberries with sour cream and brown sugar.

Stems and caps should be fresh and firm. The berry should be plump and firm with a nice red finish. Avoid green or white-topped strawberries, or those that are mushy, shriveled, or leaky.

Preparation
Wash and prepare with or without stems.
