Strawberries Nutrients and Health Benefits

StrawberriesSince I pretty much have all or most of the popular fruits, vegetables, nuts, and meats in my blog collection, I decided to update some of the very first ones. My earlier article posts weren’t as detailed, full, and interesting as newer ones. The reason for that is because I’m noticing that I got some more and some better experience in writing about the Nutrients and Health Benefits of different kinds of foods. So, this article is going to be an update of my older article post about Strawberries Nutrients and Benefits. Only I’ll give this article a little bit different title, let’s call it Strawberries Nutrients and Health Benefits.

Did you know that Strawberries are not really considered as berries? It’s because the red yummy part of the strawberry is called a Receptacle. Botanically speaking, Receptacle is the thick part of a stem from which flower’s organs grow, but in the strawberries the Receptacle gives the rise to the red edible part. The seeds of the Strawberry are called Achenes. Achenes are a type of a simple dry fruit. In other words, Strawberries are considered as an Aggregate Accessory Fruit.

Strawberries are in the Fragaria Genus and are in the Rosaceae Family. Strawberries have more than 20 different species among them. These fruits are an important commercial fruit crop around the world. People can enjoy Strawberries in fruits shakes, fruit salads, or just fresh by themselves. Even though most people can eat them and be happy about it, some people are allergic to them, probably because of the seeds. So, until you fix your allergy problem, you should stay away from Strawberries.
