Strawberries are the aggregate accessory fruit of a number of plants in the rose family. While they are not a true botanical berry, strawberries are the standard for berry flavor. They have an intense characteristic aroma, a juicy texture, and a sweet-tart taste. Strawberries are one of the world's most beloved fruits.
Uses: Strawberries are excellent raw in fruit salads, yogurt, cereal, and smoothies. They make for excellent preserves and jams when cooked. Our favorite preparation is blended and frozen to make fruity ice pops!
