When the ‘I’ is replaced by ‘we’ even illness becomes wellness.
When is strawberry season? Here in Pittsburgh, NOW [from late May to early June]. In Florida, the fruit grows from November through April. Texas grows strawberries from February through April. California also starts in February but harvests through November. Because strawberries are so easy to freeze, the wonderful fruit can be enjoyed year round.
Two shocking discoveries about strawberries made at Outforia were that the luscious red fruit is not actually a berry, which “like blueberries and grapes, are fleshy fruits with seeds and pulp that develop from flowers with only one ovary.” Yes, ovaries. And each, individual strawberry has many ovaries.
Beyond their fabulous flavor, strawberries have quite a few health benefits. According to Natural Food Series, they:
- Contain “potassium and fisetin, the flavonol that gives the strawberry its scarlet color, enhances memory”
- Offer high amounts of potassium and magnesium, “both of which are efficient in lowering high blood pressure”
- Preserve eyesight thanks to their “Ellagic acid, flavonoids, and phenolic phytochemicals”

Healthline reminds that fresh strawberries are 91% water, with lots of Vitamin C, Managanese, and Folate [vitamin B9]. ‘Folate is important for normal tissue growth and cell function.”
