Strawberries are a member of the rose family.
The strawberry is the only fruit to carry its seeds on the outside.
There are 200 seeds in the average strawberry. Each of these seeds has the genetic potential to become a new variety of strawberries since no two seeds are the same. This is how plant breeders develop new varieties of strawberries.
Technically strawberries are not true berries. True berries have seeds on the inside and they don’t come from a single ovary.
Botanists call the strawberry a “false fruit,” a pseudocarp. A strawberry is actually a multiple fruit that consists of many tiny individual fruits embedded in a fleshy receptacle.
Strawberries are the first fruit to ripen in the spring.
A strawberry will not ripen once it is picked.
Americans eat 3.4 pounds of fresh strawberries a year, and another 1.8 pounds of frozen strawberries a year.
One acre of land can grow about 50,000 pounds of strawberries.
Strawberries are grown in every single U.S. state and Canadian province.
California produces 75% of crops in the U.S. About 1 billion pounds of strawberries are produced each year in California alone.
Florida is second in production, and North Carolina is ranked third.
There is a museum in Belgium just for strawberries.
Strawberries are indigenous to North and South America, Europe, and Asia (but not Africa, Australia, or New Zealand) and thus, have always been available for mankind’s diet.
