While most of the interior United States remains locked in the cold grip of winter, here in central Florida, the famous Plant City strawberry crop is already rolling into local farmer’s markets, a sign of spring around the corner!

With their bright red exterior, covering of dimpled tiny yellow seeds, and lid of tousled green leaves, the wonderful strawberry is a delight to the eye as well as the mouth!  Here’s a few interesting facts about this beautiful berry:

  • Strawberries are the only fruit with their seeds on the outside.  Each berry can contain over 200 seeds—it takes just one strawberry to start your own strawberry field forever.
  • Because the fruit is fragile and can bruise easily, all strawberries all hand-picked.
  • Strawberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C, potassium, folic acid, lutein, and fiber.
  • A study from the Harvard School of Public Health showed that that women who eat 16 or more strawberries per week are 14% less likely to have elevated levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a key marker of inflammation in the body.
Organic freeze-dried powdered strawberries are a key ingredient in Living Fuel’s revolutionary LivingFuel SuperBerry Ultimate and SuperBerry Original functional whole-meal superfoods. (more…)
