The word “strawberry” is believed to derive from “stray” or “strew,” for the fruit’s tendency to propagate promiscuously. Strawberries are the fifth most consumed fresh fruit in the U.S., after bananas, apples, oranges and grapes. Like raspberries and blackberries, strawberries are in the same subfamily as roses. None are true berries. The Guinness World Record for heaviest strawberry is 8.82 ounces. It was the size of an apple. Pairing: sparkling Moscato d’Asti or White Zinfandel; Extra Dry Prosecco; or Rosé.
