Strawberries

Tip

Look for plump, shiny, tender berries, with a good, bright colour and a sweet aroma.

Here in the UK strawberries are in season for only six weeks from early June to mid-August, but are now a year-round fruit, thanks to imports from warmer climates.

The Elsanta variety accounts for 80 per cent of the British fruit sold in UK supermarkets, however other varieties are available at "pick your own" farms.

Strawberries are synonymous with the British summer and during the Wimbledon tennis tournament roughly 27,000 kilos of strawberries are eaten!
