For optimum flavor, harvest berries when they are fully ripe - red with no white or green areas. Watch your strawberries closely during the harvest time as the fruits tend to ripen rapidly. In warm weather, harvest daily or every other day. Use your thumbnail to snap off the stem, leaving the cap and stem on the berry.
