What is this Holiday for?
National Strawberry month is when we celebrate the love of strawberries and take notice of all the value this delicious fruit has to offer. So don't let this month pass you by without treating you and your family with some delicious strawberry treats in celebration of National Strawberry Month.


The Garden Strawberry
The Garden strawberry (Fragaria ×ananassa and related cultivars) is the most common variety of strawberry cultivated worldwide. Like other species of Fragaria (strawberries), it belongs to the family Rosaceae. Technically, its fruit is known as an accessory fruit, in that the fleshy part is derived not from the plant's ovaries (achenes) but from the peg at the bottom of the bowl-shaped hypanthium that holds the ovaries.

The Garden Strawberry was first bred in Europe in the early 18th century, and represents the accidental cross of Fragaria virginiana from eastern North America, which was noted for its flavor, and Fragaria chiloensis from Chile, which was noted for its large size.

Cultivars of Fragaria ×ananassa have replaced in commercial production the Woodland Strawberry, which was the first strawberry species cultivated in the early 17th century.

How we use strawberries
In addition to being consumed fresh, strawberries are frozen or made into preserves. Strawberries are a popular addition to dairy products, as in strawberry flavored ice cream, milkshakes, smoothies and yogurts. Strawberry pie is also popular. Strawberries can also be used as a natural acid/base indicator. They are also dried and used in cereal  and cereal bars.

Strawberries, the romantic picnic food
Strawberries have always been popular placed in picnic baskets for romantic outing. Strawberries dipped in cream or chocolate has long been an erotic favorite.  See Sex Food / See Romantic Meals

They are also supposedly used for whitening teeth.?

Strawberry Nutrition
One cup (144 g) of strawberries constitutes approximately 45 calories (188 kJ) and is an excellent source of vitamin C and flavonoids.
