Strawberries are one of our favorite fruits to eat year-round, especially in summer. They are diet friendly and offer many amazing health benefits. The first garden strawberry was grown in France in the 18th century. Every since then, people have used them in salads, baking, smoothies, or eating them alone. Did you know that the heaviest strawberry weighed 250 grams (8.8 oz) in Japan? Talk about a big bite!
