With Florida’s strawberry season in full swing, there’s no better time to share some sweet berry facts! Put your strawberry knowledge to the test with Wish Farm’s first installment of Berry Trivia: Strawberry Edition!
Question 1: True or False- Strawberries are the only fruit with seeds on the outside
Strawberries, unlike most fruits, have a unique twist in their seed arrangement. While many fruits keep their seeds hidden within, strawberries proudly display theirs on the outside. In the world of fruits, strawberries stand out as the rebels with seeds on the exterior. So, the next time you enjoy a juicy strawberry, take a moment to appreciate this quirky feature that sets them apart from the rest of the fruity bunch!
Question 2: How many days does it take for a strawberry bloom to become a ripe berry?
A: 30 Days
B: 15 Days
C: 21 Days
D: 10 Days
Answer: 21 days
From the moment they bloom, strawberries have a swift 21-day journey to ripe berry perfection. A bonus fun fact is that strawberries do not continue to ripen after they’re picked, which is why we make it our mission to always pick the most ripe, bright red berries for you to enjoy!
Question 3: True or False- A serving of strawberries has more vitamin C than an orange
In need of a Vitamin C boost? Snack on some strawberries! While oranges take all the credit for being sources of Vitamin C, strawberries contain more Vitamin C per milligram than oranges. The average strawberry contains 10 mg of vitamin c, while oranges contain about 70 mg. One serving (8 berries) contains all the vitamin c you need for the day!
Question 4: When is Florida’s strawberry season?
Answer: Right now!
Florida’s Strawberry season begins in November, and runs through April! (think Thanksgiving to Easter). Florida’s climate creates the perfect conditions for strawberries to flourish during this season, offering a delightful and extended period to enjoy the juiciest strawberries straight from the fields.
