The cultivated strawberries we enjoy today began in France with the chance meeting of two American species; one from North America, the other from South America. The first strawberry to arrive in France in the early 1600s was the F. Virginiana, the wild scarlet woodland strawberry that was found growing along the Eastern United States. A century would pass before the second American species, F. Chiloensis, would arrive from South America. 

This all began when a French engineer, who was sent to the west coast of South America for a totally different reason, found and brought back to France a large walnut sized strawberry that tasted like a pineapple. At first, although the Chilean strawberry plant thrived, it would not bear any fruit. Then, by chance, the North American strawberry was planted near the South American plant. The two strawberry plants met and crossed naturally to produce a strawberry with the best characteristics of the two species. This new hybrid was the ancestor of the cultivated strawberries that have become one of the most popular fruits in the world today. continued below

Continued from above.

Cultivation may allow us to buy beautiful looking strawberries year round but it is no guarantee to great taste.  But then again we have been hearing this complaint for centuries. Waverley Root in his book "Food" tells how as far back as 1560 Bruyerin-Champier, physician to Henry II of France, complained that "improvements" in strawberries have to be paid for in decreased flavor. Of course, the only way to ensure sweet tasting strawberries is to grow them yourself or to pick them at a local U-Pick strawberry farm. But as spring approaches and we yearn for signs of warmer days, the delicious Florida strawberries do give us that first tease of summer (and strawberries are the symbol of summer). Some of the Florida strawberries are so good that you may want to just serve them sliced with a little sugar and cream or cr?e fraiche But if you are more ambitious try some of these delicious recipes.
