Strawberries are a predominantly exportable fruit product. Nearly 70% of Greek domestic fruit production from the prefecture of Aitoloakarnania, and particularly from the prefecture of Ilia, is exported between December and May.
Strawberries are very tasty, yet very sensitive to humidity. From the moment of this fruit’s harvest, up to the moment of their packaging, strawberries are transported directly to a refrigerator at a temperature of 2-3 °C. The fruit remains there for 3 to 4 hours before leaving for the individual consumer. This process is known as pre-cooling and is done in order to avoid the softening of the fruit, but also to reduce any potential chance of any infestation by fungi and bacteria.
After this process, we preserve the strawberries in chambers with high relative humidity and temperature of 3°C for a maximum of 6 days. Usually, this is the time it takes to reach the final consumer.
Strawberries are packed in vitamins, fiber, and supply your body with high levels of antioxidants. This kind of fruit is a sodium-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free, low-calorie food. Indeed, they are among the top fruits in antioxidant capacity and are a great source of manganese and potassium.
Tip for the Consumer
When you buy strawberries, place the fruit in the refrigerator. It is absolutely unadvisable to wash them before putting them in the refrigerator. This is because they will soften and lose their freshness. In order to enjoy all the aroma and flavor of a single strawberry, you may take them out of the fridge one hour before eating them and wash them thoroughly.
