Strawberry Plants ­ Glimpse of History

Humans have enjoyed strawberries for thousands of years, and cultivating these delicious fruits has a rich and fascinating history. The first records of strawberries being grown for food date back to ancient Rome, where they were used for their sweet taste and health benefits. The ancient Greeks also prized strawberries for their flavour and the power to restore youth and vitality.

During the Middle Ages, strawberries were primarily used for medicinal purposes and were often prescribed to treat various ailments. It was in the 16th century that strawberries began to be cultivated on a larger scale for their culinary value, with the first recorded instance of strawberries being grown in France in the early 1500s.

In the 17th and 18th centuries, strawberries became increasingly popular throughout Europe and North America, with many different varieties being developed and cultivated. In the 19th century, the first commercial strawberry farms were established in the United States, and by the early 20th century, strawberries had become a staple crop in many parts of the world.
 

Strawberry Plants - Growing

Growing strawberries is a relatively straightforward process that anyone can do.

Here are the basic steps to growing strawberries:

Strawberries prefer well-drained soil and lots of sunlight. Choose a location in your garden with at least six hours of direct sunlight daily.

Prepare the soil.

Before planting your strawberries, ensure the soil is rich in nutrients and well drained. You can add compost or other organic matter to the soil to help improve its quality.

Plant the strawberries.

Space the plants about 12­18 inches apart, and ensure they are planted at the same depth they were in their original containers.

Water the strawberry plants regularly.

Strawberries need regular watering, especially during the growing season. Keep the soil consistently moist but avoid overwatering to help the plants thrive

Strawberry Plants­ Harvesting

Harvesting strawberries is a rewarding and satisfying experience, as there's nothing quite like the taste of freshly picked fruit. Knowing when to harvest your strawberries is vital to getting the most flavourful and juicy berries possible.

Wait until the berries are fully ripe before picking them; this is when they will be at their sweetest and most flavourful. Look for strawberries that are deep red in colour and slightly soft to the touch but not mushy.

To pick the strawberries, gently grasp the stem above the berry and pull it off the plant. Avoid pulling on the berry, which can damage the fruit and reduce its quality. 

Harvesting your strawberries regularly is essential, as it encourages the plants to continue producing more fruit. Check your plants during the growing season every few days, and pick any ripe berries you find. Be sure to remove mouldy or overripe berries from the plant, which can attract pests and diseases.
