About Strawberries

Easy to cultivate, strawberry plants are grown all over the world and often grow wild in areas conducive to plant germination.

The method of harvesting strawberries today is the same as it was done hundreds of years ago–by picking the delicate berry by hand. Both grading and packing frequently happen while harvesting as well, and later, strawberries are transported to areas where they are washed using water sprays and conveyor belts.

Unfortunately, humans are not the only ones who love strawberries. Flies, moths, slugs and weevils also like to munch on strawberry plants, so close monitoring and pesticide controls are need when growing large amounts of strawberries.

Strawberry and strawberry flavoring is found in many food items, such as cereal bars, ice cream, yogurt and cream pies. In addition, this fruit is unique in that is contains an antioxidant called fisetin, which may prove to delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and diabetic kidney failure.

Nutritional benefits of strawberries include:
Vitamins and minerals
Anti-aging amino acids like tyrosine and valine
“Good” lipids, or fats that help reduce cholesterol levels
Fiber and protein
