The strawberry has many origins. In Asia, Europe and America, it was already cultivated and consumed by the Romans 1,000 years before our era. The word strawberry, “fraise”, first appeared in the French language in the 12th century; it is a derivative of the popular Latin fragra, which refers to the fragrance of the berry. Its production began during the Renaissance and became widespread in the 19th century, giving rise to more than 600 varieties. Light in calories, surprisingly rich in vitamin C, the fruit is very refreshing … It is undoubtedly the fruit star of summer! The United States, Spain and Morocco are the main producers of strawberries.
