Berries should have a full red color, bright luster and firm, plump flesh. Choose fully ripe berries. The caps should be bright green, fresh looking and fully attached. Berries should be dry and clean; usually medium to small berries have better eating quality than large ones. Avoid berries with large uncolored or seedy areas or those with a dull, soft look.
