The strawberry ( Fragaria x ananassa ) as we know it today originated in America and is a hybrid of the wild strawberries found there. It is one of the most popular fruits for the balcony or garden due to its high yield and easy care. Strawberries are mostly bought as a plant . You can also grow them from seeds, but this is more complicated. The plant is put outside in spring . They prefer a sunny location , where the fruits develop the most aroma and become sweeter than in a shady location. The strawberry flowers white and then develops sweet red fruits. These can be harvested from June. In May, after flowering , it is important for a successful harvest to cover the soil under the plants with straw so that the fruit is protected from moisture. The plants are hardy and perennial.
