Stem strawberries are readily distinguished by their overall conical shape and large uniform size. Bright candy apple red and perfectly glossy, Stem strawberries are harvested to maintain a two-inch stem. They are plump and succulent with a classic sweet flavor and perfect hint of tartness.
Stem strawberries are available year-round.
Strawberries are botanically known as Fragaria ananassa and are members of the Rosaceae family. Not technically a true berry, but rather a greatly enlarged flower receptacle, the Stem strawberry is a unique variety selectively cultivated for its long sturdy stem and generous size. These varieties produce large, sweet berries with larger than average runners, which are the long leafless stems between the mother plant and its subsequent fruits. They are carefully cut by hand in order to leave a long stems intact.
Strawberries are an excellent source of antioxidants, vitamins A, C, E and the B-complex group as well as minerals such as, potassium, manganese, fluorine, copper, iron and iodine.
Stem strawberries are meant to be served whole and intact. The quintessential application for Stem strawberries is chocolate covered. They can also be placed atop tarts and cakes. The fruit can be cored and stuffed with truffles, cream cheese, chevre and fruit compotes. Complimentary pairings include stonefruits such as peaches and cherries, rhubbarb, vanilla, white chocolate, lavender, thyme, pineapple, banana, caramel, coconut, mascarpone, and heavy cream.
There are over a hundred species of Strawberries that are found growing in temperate regions all around the world. Yet, it was the union of two unique species native to the Americas that give us the standard Strawberry we know today. Fragaria virginiana, native to North America, was taken from the New World to France in 1624. Fragaria chiloensis, a wild species of Strawberry native to Chile, was also taken to France in 1712. The two were widely grown in European gardens and a chance hybridization resulted in the modern day Strawberry now cultivated world-wide, Fragaria ananassa. The three main types of modern commercially grown strawberry cultivars are: June-bearing, Everbearing and Day-neutral. June-bearing strawberries are harvested in June, Everbearing strawberries thrive in hotter climates, while Day-neutral strawberries do not respond to day length, rather they flower and fruit for about five months.
