WHAT DOES STRAWBERRY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

strawberry

Strawberry

The garden strawberry (or simply strawberry /ˈstrɔːb(ə)ri/; Fragaria × ananassa) is a widely grown hybrid species of the genus Fragaria (collectively known as the strawberries). It is cultivated worldwide for its fruit. The fruit (which is not a botanical berry, but an aggregate accessory fruit) is widely appreciated for its characteristic aroma, bright red color, juicy texture, and sweetness. It is consumed in large quantities, either fresh or in such prepared foods as preserves, fruit juice, pies, ice creams, milkshakes, and chocolates. Artificial strawberry aroma is also widely used in many industrial food products. The garden strawberry was first bred in Brittany, France, in the 1750s via a cross of Fragaria virginiana from eastern North America and Fragaria chiloensis, which was brought from Chile by Amédée-François Frézier in 1714. Cultivars of Fragaria × ananassa have replaced, in commercial production, the woodland strawberry (Fragaria vesca), which was the first strawberry species cultivated in the early 17th century.

Definition of strawberry in the English dictionary

The first definition of strawberry in the dictionary is any of various low-growing rosaceous plants of the genus Fragaria, such as F. vesca and F. ananassa, which have white flowers and red edible fruits and spread by runners. Other definition of strawberry is the fruit of any of these plants, consisting of a sweet fleshy receptacle bearing small seedlike parts. Strawberry is also a purplish-red colour.
