A Bit of History
Not that long ago commercial strawberry production didn’t even exist. True, the Roman poets Virgil and Ovid did mention the strawberry way back in the first century A.D., but they referenced it as an ornamental, not as a food. Wild strawberries have been eaten by people around the world since ancient times, but not in large quantities since the fruits were small or tough or lacked flavor.
The first garden strawberry was grown in Brittany, France, during the late 18th century. The strawberry fruit was mentioned in ancient Roman literature in reference to its medicinal use. The French began taking the strawberries from the forest to their gardens for harvest in the 14th century. Charles V, France's king from 1364 to 1380, had 1,200 strawberry plants in his royal garden. In the early 15th century western European monks were using the wild strawberry in their illuminated manuscripts. The strawberry is found in Italian, Flemish, and German art, and in English miniatures.
The combination of strawberries and cream was created by Thomas Wolsey in the court of King Henry VIII.
