Did you know?

The strawberry is not strictly a fruit!

A strawberry is an enlarged stem-end that is made up of lots of tiny fruits called achenes. The tiny, green, dried achenes of the strawberry are what most people think of as the strawberry seeds. They are dotted all over the strawberry, and the seeds of the plant are actually inside these achenes.

Look at the picture below. How many achenes can you count?

Would you have guessed that a cup of strawberries actually has more vitamin C than an orange? They are also very rich in potassium and folic acid. Overall, a very healthy berry!
