 Fun Facts about Strawberries:

  • They come from a plant called ‘fragaria’ and are members of the rose family
  • Despite its name, the strawberry isn’t a true berry
  • Technically, it is an aggregate accessory fruit, meaning that the fleshy part is derived not from the plant’s ovaries but from the receptacle (the thickened part of a stem) that holds the ovaries
  • Each apparent “seed” (achene) on the outside of the fruit is actually one of the ovaries of the flower, with a seed inside it
  • There are about 200 seeds on an average strawberry
  • Unlike some other fruits, they don’t continue to ripen after being picked
  • The health benefits of strawberries include improved eye care, proper brain function, relief from high blood pressure, arthritis, gout and various cardiovascular diseases
  • Strawberries are rich in antioxidants. In addition to antioxidants, they have many other nutrients, vitamins,and minerals that contribute to overall health. These include folate, potassium, manganese, dietary fiber, and magnesium. It is also extremely high in vitamin C!
