Strawberries are the only fruit that has seeds on the outside. The fruits are high in vitamin C and are a significant source of folic acid, which is essential for fetal development.
Eight strawberries have more vitamin C than a medium orange, according to About.com. Strawberries may be consumed in a number of ways. The fruit is commonly eaten raw and can be frozen, but may become mushy as it thaws. Strawberries can also be folded and added into cake batter. The berries are also used to make strawberry shortcake. This is a cake dessert with a sweet strawberry topping, accented with whipped cream.
