A strawberry is a plant that grows fruit that people eat. The fruit of a strawberry is red when ripe, and has edible seeds on the outside. Many people eat strawberries on ice cream, or dip them in sugar. Strawberries are rich in vitamin C which may help you fight off colds. Many strawberries are grown on strawberry farms and the farmers often have hives of bees that live on the farm to pollinate the strawberries. Strawberries are technically aggregate[1] fruits, containing more than one fruit.[2] They are swollen stems[source?]/accessory fruit. Seeds (the achenes) are the true fruit.[3]
