There are many explanations for how strawberries got their name, but some believe that the name came from the practice of placing straw around the growing plants for protection from the muddy ground and insects. Wild strawberries have been used for a wide variety of medicinal purposes such as alleviating inflammation, fever, kidney stones, bad breath, and more. Strawberries are grown in Pennsylvania in late May and June, but are available year-round in the grocery store. Did you know that strawberries are the only fruit that wear their seeds on the outside?
