It is strawberry season in South Africa.

However, they don't stay fresh for long. Most of the time, they remain fresh for three to seven days in the refrigerator. 

The good thing is that there are ways that you can make them remain fresher for longer. One method is to not wash them until you eat them. 

Another great method is to store your unwashed strawberries in an air-tight glass jar and store them in the fridge. 

This will make them last for at least ten days. 

Go ahead and try the method and you will thank us later.
