The strawberry is a small sweet fruit.

Choose red strawberries, being careful to avoid any signs of rot. Rotting strawberries tend to have mushy spots that may be discolored and sunken, often turning a bit violet or lavender. Unripe strawberries tend to be pale, sometimes almost white.

When chopped up and boiled down with sugar, strawberries make a good topping for vanilla ice cream.

Strawberries are used on several occasions, like cake.
