Is that mold or fungus or some junk?

I notice it happens very fast on raspberries and black berries, pretty slow with strawberries, and blueberries keep for a long time.

When your berries turn white it's time to put some pants on and come inside out of the cold.

*rim shot*

Seriously folks, did you mean the color? like the tip of some underaged strawberries..or did you mean fuzzy white like grandpa.

I hate fungus. I can never seem to keep berries more than a few days and I only want to eat an ounce or so at a time.

I was hoping they were coccooning and would blossom into a berryfly. I was wrong. :(

your best bet is to find a box that doesn't have moldy berries in it in the first place. then it usually keeps for a good while in the fridge. i usually check the bottom because that's where the moldy ones like to hide.

I check thoroughly! I call it my 3-point inspection.

2. Check the berries for mold.
3. Check the berries for firmness (with my fingers).

Almost forgot:
1. Check to make sure no one is looking.

I'm not ashamed of my fruit groping ways...and if you have a problem with it I have two friends that you can discuss it with.

(stop looking around I meant my fists....my two fists are my friends- ..........never mind...)
