Anthocyanines, which give strawberries their juicy red color, inhibit certain cancers along with other cancer- preventative nutrients such as ellagic acid.
The levels of ellagic acid, a cancer- fighting nutrient found in strawberries, are five to six times higher than in most fruits and vegetables.
Strawberries have the best flavor when at room temperature. Remove them from the refrigerator an hour or two before serving. A dash of balsamic vinegar, lemon juice or orange juice will bring out the flavor of strawberries.
To retain flavor, texture and nutrients, don't wash or remove the caps until you are ready to eat! These porous berries quickly absorb the water and lose some of their flavor.
Strawberries are the only fruit with seeds on the outside. Each strawberry has about 200 of them, and each one has the genetic potential to become a new variety.
Strawberries are not really fruit in the botanical sense. The "real" fruit are the objects we think of as "strawberry seeds."
Strawberries are in the Rose (Rosaceae) family. All varieties of strawberries belong to the Fragaria genus.
To ensure top quality, flavorful strawberries for every crop, we do not use seeds to produce strawberries. Rather, bare root plants are planted, ensuring that each variety of Plant City strawberries are planted using offspring produced from an original plant.
