Strawberry Fun Facts

1.    Strawberries are the only fruit that wear their seeds on the outside.

2.    Strawberries are members of the rose family.

3.    The strawberry plant is a perennial.

4.    Strawberries are believed to help reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers.

5.    To store fresh strawberries, wash them and cut the stem away. However, if you plan to keep them in the fridge for a few days, wait until before you eat them to clean them. Rinsing them speeds up spoiling.

6.    Strawberries can be pickled. Especially when picked green or unripe. If your berries are overripe, make jam!
