Strawberries are the only fruit to wear their seeds on the outside? The average berry is adorned with 200 some seeds.
Native Americans ate strawberries long before European settlers arrived. As spring’s first fruit, they were eaten freshly picked or even baked into cornbread.
Americans eat an average of three and a half pounds of fresh strawberries a year. It is closer to 5 pounds if you count frozen berries.
For 77+ years, the West Virginia Strawberry Festival could not exist without our community sponsors and the generous support of businesses and organizations. Thank you tremendously for your contributions!
