Dry Pint Basket

A Dry Pint Basket is a measurement of volume, used mostly for fruits and vegetables.

When a dry pint is meant and it's necessary to distinguish it from a liquid pint, usually "dry" will be stated.

It does not measure weight.
  • 1 dry pint = 1/2 dry quart
  • 1 dry pint = 1 1/2 cups (when referring to fruit around the size of blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc)
  • 1 dry pint = 550 ml
  • 1 dry pint = 33.6 cubic inches = 550 cubic cm

A North American 2 cup measuring cup will measure a dry pint out.


1 dry pint of blueberries = 350 to 400 g (12 to 14 oz)

1 dry pint blackberries = approximately 350 g (12 oz)
1 dry pint raspberries = approximately 350 g (12 oz)
1 dry pint of fresh medium-sized strawberries = 350 g (12 oz) = 3 1/4 cups whole berries = 2 cups, trimmed and sliced or halved
1 dry pint of cherry tomatoes, whole = 25 to 30 cherry tomatoes
