All About Strawberries

Who doesn’t know this fruit? I believe that the people around the world know this fruit very well. The fruit with the scientific name is Fragaria X ananassa can be found in almost every country. Plants are classified as herbal fruit was first found in Chile. And then it bred well in North America for the type of Fragaria Virginiana as the famous one and South America, Chile. One of well-known species is Fragaria Chilioensis L which spread to various parts of the world such as America, Europe and Asia as well. Fragaria name was taken from the word "Fragans" which means the fragrant of strawberry fruit.

Strawberry can not only be eaten directly, but can also be used as a cake decoration or material base to make drinks and so on. Red color is very pretty tempting because the content of anthocyanin pigments and antioxidants as well. I heard that strawberries have ranked as the 50 best antioxidant sources among commonly eaten foods, it's to be quite exceptional. From this hub I’ll describe more about strawberries for our knowledge. Curious? Please, continue to read!

A little history of Strawberries

Do you know why strawberry made as a symbol of love in ancient Greece? Whether because of its shape like a heart? Apparently wasn’t like that. Strawberry became the symbol of love by the ancient Greek society because of the color, flavor and benefits of this fruit. Since then the fruit is to be famous. In terms of physical appearance is beautiful, seductive, feminine, sensitive and sweet, like a woman. So, many people call strawberry is the "love's fruit". Hmm.....

Some of the etymology of Strawberry word, such as; gardener activity by using "straw" to grow fruit and protects it from decay or can also be derived from the Anglo-Saxon era in which the verb of "Strew" has meaning to spread in surroundings, and "Streabergen" (Strea means "sown" and Bergen means the seeds or fruits). Then the following of some words like streberie, straiberie, strauberie, straubery, strauberry, and finally became "Strawberry". The name is presumably due to the fact that the seeds of the fruit are sowed on the ground.

In 1714, a French engineer sent to Chile and Peru to study about strawberries and he brought many samples back to France. The cultivation of strawberries began to be pursued in earnest until the 18th century. Now, we can find delicious strawberries because of a natural crossbreeding between the species from Chile and a neighboring North American strawberry. The result was strawberry that was large, sweet and juicy. And this is one that quickly grew in popularity in Europe. Today there are over 700 kinds of strawberries are spread all over the world and that we find in many supermarkets are modern strawberry (commercial) Fragaria x annanassa var Duchesne as the resulting from the cross of F. virgina L var Duchesne from North American with F. Chilioensis L. Var Duchesnefrom Chile.

White Strawberry, the uniqueness of Strawberry

Have you ever heard about white strawberry? Or this is the first time you heard and see about this fruit. We called this fruit as Pineberries. This fruit looks like a strawberry but with a pineapple flavor. Pineberries will be sold in 45 branch of Waitrose supermarket. Waitrose itself is an upmarket chain of supermarkets in the United Kingdom. I heard that this fruit was found in South America and was saved from extinction by a Dutch farmer. At Waitrose, a round basket (containing about 125 pieces) sold of £ 3.99. Interested?

The World’s Biggest and the Most Expensive Strawberry

This is a strawberry with the same price with “Blackberry” smart phone. A single strawberry has the price about $550. We called this “Bijin Hime”. It’s totally a unique strawberry which produced in the Gifu Province, Haneshima City, Japan. Bijin Hime means the beautiful princesses. It has weight about 80 grams. A pack of "Bijin Hime" consists 4 up to 5 pieces. It took about 30 years of research to make this giant strawberry. Wow…..it must be sweet and juicy.

Strawberries farm (another recreational idea)

In 2010, USA produce about 1,292,780 tonnes of strawberries, it's about 30.74% from total of world production and followed by Turkey, Spain, Egypt, and South Korea. Back to topic, there are many strawberry farms in the world. I just took two examples here.

"Strawberry city", this farm is located in 5384 NC Hwy 58 South. Nashville, NC 27856. The phone number is 252-904-5594. At this farm, we can join the strawberries fieldtrips for kids.

I am bookmarking this article. It contains a wealth of information about the strawberry that I was not aware of despite the fact that a neighboring province where I reside is noted for their strawberry cultivation and has an annual strawberry festival. Except for Ice cream flavored, I am not very fond of the fruit...that is before reading your hub. Thanks.

Hi Prasetio,

Wow! You packed so much information into this hub all about the strawberry. Amazing job! When we lived in Wisconsin Rapids, I used to go strawberry picking with my next door neighbor several times a year. His wife processed theirs and froze enough so that they could eat strawberries every day of the year!

My husband and I eat fresh strawberries often and love them. Mixed with other fruit or just sliced all by themselves with added yogurt and some sliced almonds on top, it makes a good breakfast. Just finished some, in fact.

All votes up except funny and will tweet and share with my followers.

Wow Pras what an informative hub....everything and more about the strawberry. For some reason I never really acquired a taste for them but I still use them in smoothies and for baking.

Hello prasetio, Nice to meet you. I am fascinated with all of the information about strawberries found on this hub. I have never seen recipe's for beauty treatments using strawberries - interesting! Until today, I have never heard of a white strawberry, tasting like pineapple, or of paying such outrageous fee's for huge strawberries.

The antioxidants are high and the calories low making strawberry's a great, disease fighting and healthy food.

Your pictures to illustrate are fun and interesting to view. I will need to bookmark this one. Thanks for doing the research to teach many of the history and benefits of the beautiful strawberry. Rated Up and Useful!

You really "burned the midnight oil" when you wrote this one; Now i know everything about strawberries :) Good Article Rated up

The Strawberry House was cute. I wonder what homeowner insurance would cost yearly for one of those.

I love to go out and pick strawberries when they come into season. Last year we had a sudden heat spell and the poor strawberries turned to mush all in one morning! What a loss to the area farmers and pickers. Hope this year will work out better. Your hub was just beautiful!

Pras! This is amazing! So many wonderful benefits and your pictures are wonderful. I'm a big fan of strawberries and I try to include them whenever possible. They definitely make my spinach smoothies taste great. We have a city in the state of Texas that is known for its strawberries - Poteet, Texas. They have a strawberry festival every year. I noticed you featured on of Poteet's pictures in your hub. I hope to make it sometime - it is about 3 hours away.

Great info and presented very well. That strawberry shortcake video sure is tempting - yum!

I am glad to know this from you. I hope always enjoy your day with healthy recipes and strawberries as part of your experiment. Take care and have a nice weekend!

I love strawberries, and your post was really interesting. But I would NEVER pay $550 for a strawberry. I don't care if it is the size of a house. I wonder how modified it is?

Love this hub! My 8 year old daughter LOVES strawberries and eats them almost every day. I am glad to know the cancer prevention benefits as she had cancer at the young age of 3 but is well now. I definitely am glad to know that all the strawberries she eats may help prevent her from ever having to deal with cancer again!
