Every 20th of May, National Pick Strawberries Day is observed just in time for summer! Strawberry picking generally ranges from late April throughout the summer months. This fruit is a part of the rose family, the only fruit with seeds on the outside. Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, they are low-calorie, and are a good source of fiber and folic acid. This wonder fruit can help fight bad cholesterol and reduce inflammation.
