Yokosuka strawberries are best when picked at the right time, so here’s a few tips before you start! Be sure to choose strawberries that are firm and plump — the color should be uniform.

1.Choose ripe, bright red berries with green caps.
2.Turn the berries upwards so that the stem is at the bottom.
3.Gently pull the berries downwards off the stem. Avoid over-ripe or moldy berries, which can quickly spoil the rest.
4.Handle gently to prevent bruising.
