The New Zealand strawberry season runs from around September to March.
Store in the refrigerator. Handle all fresh produce with care and wash before eating.
Strawberries can be traced back to the Romans and Greeks. Later medieval stonemasons carved them into altars and church pillars. In the 1700s, the French horticulturists crossed a Northern American strawberry with a Chilean one. The modern strawberry can be traced to the results of this experiment.
