The Garden Strawberry or the strawberry is the most widely cultivated berry throughout the world. The strawberry plant belongs to the family of the Rosaceae, and is often referred to as the accessory fruit. The fleshy part of the fruit is derived not from the ovaries, but from the peg at the bottom of the bowl shaped hypanthium that holds the ovaries. The garden strawberry was first grown in Europe in the 18th century and represents the accidental cross of Fragaria virginiana from eastern North America, which is rich in flavour, and the Fragaria chiloensis from Chile, which is large in size. Today, these strawberries have been replaced by the Woodland Strawberries, which have been commercially cultivated.
Strawberries are a treat to the taste buds, eyes and senses. Apart from being so delicious, these berries are a rich source of nutrition too. They are rich sources of vitamins A, B, and C, and also contain ample amounts of calcium, phosphorous, potassium, carbohydrates, etc. They are also rich in Folic acid, which helps in preventing birth related defects.
Since strawberry requires special care, we airfreight this product fresh from the farms either from South Africa or Egypt depending on the season to our facility in Lagos, Nigeria for distribution to our various clients.
