For lovers. The strawberry is a member of the rose family, and its scientific Latin name is Fragaria. The beautiful red colour and specific aroma make it one of the most beloved types of fruit in the world. It is unique in that it is the only fruit to bear its seeds on its surface, up to 200 per berry. Ten strawberries contain just 40 calories, but contain enough vitamin C to meet the daily requirement. Strawberries have always been a symbol of love. There is a folk tale that says that you will fall in love with the person you share a double strawberry with.
