Soft, red, plump and heart-shaped! Strawberries bombard the universe with sheer sweetness and innocent succulence. Sure, there are lots of other berries out there, but strawberries are so fabulously pretty and unique that botanists don’t even classify them as true berries! Unlike true berries like cranberry and blueberry that have their seeds inside, the strawberry has dry yellow seeds on the outside. These strawberries are adorably cute and charming that they are used for fashionable accessories and ornaments. This is what we think of Sweet Strawberries’ Blog—delightfully sweet, charmingly unique and fashionable!

- Rumor has it that strawberries were named long ago by English children who used to handpick the fruit, strung them on grass of straws and sold them as “straws of berries”.
- Some historians speculate, however, that the name of the fruit was derived from the Old English streawberige, because the plant’s runners stray in all directions.
- On average, each strawberry has 200 seeds.
- Strawberries are not berries. They’re actually from the rose family, and their actual fruits are the tiny yellow seeds on their outsides.
