Strawberries

Fragaria

Strawberries, which brighten the view and the palate, are the fruit of the strawberry tree, a plant of the Rosaceae family. Its botanical name, Fragaria vesca, derives from the Latin fragans, which means «fragrant» and thus points to one of its characteristics: the fragrance that can be perceived even at a distance. Although wild strawberry has been known since prehistoric times and was consumed by Greeks and Romans, it did not begin to grow until the 13th century in Europe.
