We have been picking Strawberries for a few weeks now. These are large sweet berries grown in Hillsborough county, Florida. Our picking season is just about over.

Garden Strawberry

 Many of the new and different varieties are developed by the University of Florida. Did you know that those little dark specks on the strawberry are the seeds?

Wild Strawberry

Originally wild strawberries were very small, about the size of cranberry. Garden strawberries as we know, large and sweet, were first grown in France around the 1700 hundreds.
