strawberry information and easy strawberry recipes

The history of modern strawberry breeding dates back to the 1714 when Amedee Francois Frezier, a French army officer returned from a foreign mission with plants of the large fruited F. chiloensis he had seen fruiting in Chile. Later in France, these plants were crossed with F. virginiana, which had been introduced into Europe at an earlier date. Genetic improvement during the next two hundred years was relatively slow and was done primarily by private breeders. Over the next eighty years, strawberry breeders have sought to increase yield and fruit size as well as incorporating resistance to diseases and insect pests.

Strawberries remain the favorite of many gardeners around the world because they require little space to grow and fruit relatively quickly after planting. There are two widely cultivated types of strawberries; "Junebearing" and "Everbearing". "Junebearing" strawberries bloom in response to short day-lengths, are planted in late fall or winter and produce fruit the spring after planting. In Texas, the name "Junebearing" does not really apply because in some locations, fruit begins to ripen in February, but with cool springs, plants can at times continue to produce fruit through May and into early June.
