Robbie Sigona’s Produce Tips for Olallieberries & Boysenberries

  • Shelf life for these berries is short. You should eat them within 2-3 days of purchase
  • Arrange berries, unwashed, in a shallow dish lined with paper towels in the refrigerator right after purchase
  • Only wash berries prior to immediate enjoyment
  • The sooner you eat them after purchase, the better
  • Like a red wine, they’re best cool, but not chilled; this allows the aromas and flavors to really come out
  • Because they’re so fragile, Boysenberries and Olallieberries are a real treat that most stores won’t carry. Take advantage of these while they last. It’s my favorite berry!
