Strawberry is a widely grown hybrid species of the genus Fragaria(collectively known as the strawberries).It is cultivated worldwide for its fruit. The fruit is widely appreciated for its characteristic aroma, bright red color, juicy texture, and sweetness. It is consumed in large quantities, either fresh or in such prepared foods as preserves, fruit juice, pies, ice creams, milkshakes, chocolates, and yogurt with ‘strawberries and cream’ being the ultimate summer dessert, famously consumed at The Wimbledon Tennis Championships in England. This beautiful red fruit is also sandwiched in sponge cakes, mixed with meringue and whipped cream to make ‘Eton Mess’ and preserved as jam.
The garden strawberry was first bred in Brittany, France, in the 1750s via a cross of Fragaria virginiana from eastern North America andFragaria chiloensis, which was brought from Chile by Amédée-François Frézier in 1714. Cultivars of Fragaria × ananassa have replaced, in commercial production, the woodland strawberry (Fragaria vesca), which was the first strawberry species cultivated in the early 17th century.
Technically, the strawberry is an aggregate accessory fruit, meaning that the fleshy part is derived not from the plant's ovaries but from the receptacle that holds the ovaries. Each apparent "seed" (achene) on the outside of the fruit is actually one of the ovaries of the flower, with a seed inside it.
A popular flavor in France, strawberry syrup is added to water, green mint and lemonade to make a Strawberry Diabolo as well as flavored milk drinks.
