Native Americans found blueberries extremely versatile - they developed the practice of drying them in the sun and using them to flavour cakes; they also pounded them and added them to meat dishes and soups.

The Strawberry

The 'strawberry' was named after the plant's tendency to stray. The English were pioneers of strawberry cultivation in the 19th century, breeding the Downtown and Elton varieties as well as the Keens’ Seedling, which caused a stir because of its size and flavour. Fresh cream has always been the Englishman’s accompaniment of choice; on the Continent crème fraîche is preferred.
