There are 1 1/2 pounds of strawberries in a quart. To compare pricing of a quart to that of a pound, multiply the per-pound price by 1.5.
Strawberries come in a variety of sizes; however, size is not an indication of taste. Taste is affected by the weather during the growth phase, the level of ripeness when the strawberries are harvested and the variety of the strawberry. Choosing strawberries that have a bright red color with healthy green caps should ensure they are of good quality.
There are over 600 varieties of strawberries. While strawberries are grown in every state in the United States, most strawberries come from California or Florida.
