Description:Pictured here, set atop this white ceramic serving plate, were at left, two thoroughly washed strawberries, at right, a freshly-baked buttermilk biscuit, and in the foreground, a dollop of strawberry jam.
Perhaps the most popular of all the berries, strawberries have the most vitamin C of the berry family. Strawberries have been known since the time of the Greeks and Romans and cultivation of strawberries began in 1624. Commercial growing in America began about 1800 on the east coast of the United States. Strawberries moved west with the pioneers and now there are more than seventy varieties of strawberries, many of which are grown in California and Florida. This familiar fruit is usually available fresh year round with a peak from April to July.
