Strawberry seeds

The garden strawberry, Fragaria × ananassa, is a hybrid species that is cultivated worldwide for its fruit, the (common) strawberry.

The strawberry fruit (which is not a botanical berry, but an aggregate accessory fruit) is widely appreciated for its characteristic aroma, bright red color, juicy texture, and sweetness. It is consumed in large quantities, either fresh or in prepared foods such as preserves, fruit juice, pies, ice creams, and milkshakes.

Artificial strawberry aroma is also widely used in many industrialized food products.

Technically, the strawberry is an aggregate accessory fruit, meaning that the fleshy part of the strawberry is derived not from the plant's ovaries but from the receptacle that holds the ovaries. Each apparent "seed" (achene) on the outside of the fruit is actually one of the ovaries of the strawberry flower, with a seed inside it.

The first garden strawberry was grown in France during the late 18th century. Prior to this, wild strawberries and cultivated selections from wild strawberry species were the common source of the fruit. The strawberry fruit was mentioned in ancient Roman literature in reference to its medicinal use. The French began taking the strawberry from the forest to their gardens for harvest in the 1300s. The strawberry is found in Italian, Flemish, German art, and English miniatures. Strawberry symbolizes perfect righteousness. The entire strawberry plant was used to treat depressive illnesses.

Strawberry cultivars vary widely in size, color, flavor, shape, degree of fertility, season of ripening, liability to disease and constitution of plant. Some strawberry vary in foliage, and some vary materially in the relative development of their sexual organs. In most cases, the strawberries flowers appear hermaphroditic in structure, but function as either male or female
