Strawberries are one of the most popular and sweetest fruits in the world. In the Netherlands, these popular soft fruits have the well-deserved nickname of ‘summer kings’. The later strawberries are picked in the season, the stronger their aroma. Strawberries make an ideal combination with warm/sweet spices or with other fruits.
