Strawberry

(Fragaria ananassa)

Strawberry is like a hot summer kiss that is given to a cold winter evening. Some of them we catch in the garden, others we wrap up in our pancakes. The most glowing ones we send to you in a form of a berry during the summer time. In winter time we give it to you minced and frozen so that you could enjoy the love of the strawberry all year round. Strawberry, same as love, is the elixir of youth, health and longevity. Doctors are not needed in the house where strawberries are eaten. It is the most popular berry and a young girl’s whim. However, with strawberries the same as with girls – you never know! The more naive and pure is the flower of the strawberry, the more tempting and sweet are the berries! Maybe that is the reason why earlier strawberry was a symbol of pleasure! So enjoy them together with your beloved ones!
