Background

There is something so quintessentially English about strawberries that its hard to believe that the sweet, fragrant fruits we enjoy so much were first bred in Brittany in France. Some of our most treasured traditions centre around strawberries: tennis at Wimbledon wouldnt be the same without the combination of strawberries and cream, but there are plenty of other traditions worldwide which involve these sumptuous berries. 

The classic, fruity flavour is perfectly captured in Monin Strawberry Syrup.

 

Sweet through the centuries

Roman literature mentions the use of strawberries and at the time it was believed that they could cure everything from sore throats, fevers and fainting to depression and kidney stones. Its easy to see why who wouldnt feel better with a bowl of freshly picked strawberries to soothe their ailments? It was the French who first began cultivating the wild woodland strawberries that were so sought-after and growing them in their gardens to provide them with a reliable harvest as early as the 14th century.

Charles V, King of France, had more than a thousand strawberry plants in his garden and by the 15th century, monks were incorporating wild strawberries into their illuminated manuscripts. James  I was also a fan of the fruit and the 15th century saw the strawberry become a popularly procured element of royal banquets where hosts used them to demonstrate their wealth among the guests - strawberries were much sought-after, both for their sweet flavour and their relative scarcity. 

The Tudors and the Stuarts were huge fans of the Alpine strawberry which grew wild in the hedgerows and in woodlands. By 1625, Sir Francis Bacon had joined the legions of strawberry-lovers, although it was the leaves he was interested in, describing their scent as an excellent, cordial smell. 

Wimbledon served strawberries and cream back in 1877 at their first ever tennis tournament.   Back then, they were delivered via the railway network which had revolutionised the transportation system and today they are still picked at 4am each morning and then delivered fresh to the stadium by 11am, with more than 140,000 servings consumed every year. 

 

Strawberries around the world

Although for many, the strawberry is a quintessentially British flavour, there are many other countries that associate strawberries with some of their most beloved traditions. The Strawberry Museum in Namur is proof of their importance in Belgian culture, featuring everything strawberry-flavoured including classics such as their range of jams, alongside more unusual fare like strawberry beer. 

In France, strawberries are thought to embody romance so they are often included in wedding breakfasts and fed to newlyweds in the form of a sweet, creamy strawberry soup. In Mexico, strawberries and cream, or Fresas con crema, is one of the nations favourite dishes and can be found at ice cream parlours across the country and even frozen in portions at supermarkets. 

Strawberries are also popular in the Philippines, where they are used to make a strawberry syrup which is used in the popular snack food taho. The combination of silken tofu, sago pearls and the sweet strawberry syrup are a popular one which is sold all over the country. 

The popularity of strawberries around the world has seen the annual production of the fruit increase to more than 9 million tonnes and, with 41% of the market, China is currently the leading producer and exporter of strawberries for the international market. 

 

Strawberries in horticulture

Despite their name, strawberries are not true berries like blueberries or even grapes, because the botanical definition of a berry requires the seeds to be on the inside of the fruit. A strawberry has an outer skin covered in seeds, each of which is considered its own fruit as far as botanists are concerned, and 

Strawberry plants are perennial and once planted will bear fruit for years, propagating themselves by sending out runners.
