Strasberries Will Become The New "It" Berry

No, Not Strawberries, Strasberries


Do you prefer strawberries or raspberries? If you can't decide then let me introduce you to strasberries, the fruit that falls somewhere between strawberries and raspberries. The fruit was "born" in the early 1900s, but disappeared from markets until Dutch farmers rediscovered them several years ago. Originally a type of wild strawberry, the strasberries have become a big hit in Europe due to their "unique, aromatic flavour." If you're interested in trying them, you'll have to head across the pond to London. Waitrose — a British supermarket chain — is selling the fruit in 17 of their London outlets; a 4oz basket will retail for £4 (about $8).

I don't know about you guys, but I can't wait until someone imports these to the US. I want to make a strasberry shortcake!
