Strawberries originally came from North and South America.
Strawberries grow best in hot humid regions, but they can thrive successfully almost anywhere. When planting strawberries, you aren't supposed to fertilize, unless you have really sandy soil.
Strawberries are used for deserts, for example, Strawberry Shortcake. They are also used in Milk shakes, smoothies, fruit salad, and strawberry cheesecake. Strawberries are commonly used to make jam, jelly, and yogurt.
The binomial name for the strawberry is Fragaria Ananassa. An interesting fact is the strawberry was technically named after the pineapple, for the both look somewhat alike. They took Ananas, from Ananas Comosus (pineapple), and used that in part of the binomial name for the strawberry, Fragaria Ananassa.
