The strawberry was first cultivated in the 14th Century after a French spy collected a berry from Chile and presented it to France’s King Charles V, who than planted in the Louvre’s Royal Garden.
By the 17th century this Chilean strawberry was crossed with some found in the Virginia colonies, which gave way to the large-fruiting varieties we enjoy today.
But don’t be fooled large does not always mean flavorful!
