Native forms of strawberries adapt to various climates and are indigenous to every major continent except Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
The fruit size of the very early strawberries was very small and they are the first fruit to ripen in the spring.
Strawberries are well known for their high nutritional value and medicinal properties.
Just eight strawberries daily provides more than 20% of the daily recommended folate intake for expectant mothers. Folate is also important for protein metabolism and formation of red blood cells.
Strawberries are a great source of important antioxidants, Vitamin C and silicon, both of which are important nutrients in collagen production. Silica can be called the beautifying mineral as it is important for healthy skin, nails and hair.
Strawberries help strengthen the teeth and gums and help remove tartar. Cut a strawberry in half and rub onto the teeth and gums, leave on for 45 minutes and rinse with warm water.
