After coming to Germany, Strawberry picking was something new for me. These fruits in India were so costly during my childhood, I almost thought it came from space. LOL! :) Now I know the reason why they can't be cultivated any where in the World.
They are an excellent source of Vitamin C, are juicy & have wonderful color.
Some Trivia I found from Wiki: - Garden strawberries are a common variety of strawberry cultivated worldwide. Like other species of Fragaria (strawberries), it belongs to the family Rosaceae. Technically, it is not a fruit but a false fruit, meaning the fleshy part is derived not from the plant's ovaries (achenes) but from the peg at the bottom of the bowl-shaped hypanthium that holds the ovaries.
