|Food Buzz: History of Strawberries||Listen|
White strawberries, depending on the variety, can widely vary in size from small to large and have an oval to broad, slightly tapered shape with rounded ends. The skin is smooth, glossy, firm, and white, dotted with bright red seeds and the occasional pink blushing. Underneath the surface, the flesh is white to ivory, soft, aromatic, and aqueous. White strawberries are juicy and very sweet with low acidity and have delicate notes of flowers, candy, and pineapple.
White strawberries are available in the winter through spring.
White strawberries, botanically a part of the genus Fragaria, are pale, sweet fruits that belong to the Rosaceae family. There are many different varieties of White strawberries commercially grown around the world with varying appearances, flavors, origins, and growth characteristics. White strawberries are especially popular in Japan, where the fruits are considered to be rare and are cultivated in limited supply through select growers. There are over fifty different cultivars of White strawberries in Japan with some of the most popular varieties, including White Jewel, Pearl White, Light Snow, and White Rabbit. White strawberries are premium fresh-eating fruits that are highly valued for their unusual coloring, delicate flavor, and soft texture.
White strawberries are a good source of vitamin C, which is an antioxidant that can increase collagen production within the body and boost the immune system. The fruits also contain some iron, vitamins E and K, zinc, magnesium, and calcium.
White strawberries are best suited for raw applications as the sweet fruits are primarily consumed fresh, out-of-hand. The rare berries are considered a premium fruit that is showcased by its pale coloring and delicate flavor. White strawberries can be served as a stand-alone snack or dessert, tossed into green salads and fruit bowls, used as a garnish, or they can be sliced and used as a topping on cakes, tarts, and other baked goods. In Japan, White strawberries are sold individually wrapped in protective packaging to prevent the fruit from being damaged. White strawberries pair well with vanilla, cinnamon, caramel, soft cheeses such as goat, burrata, and ricotta, and fruits such as apples, peaches, grapes, and apricots. The fresh fruits will keep 3-7 days when layered on a paper towel and stored in plastic wrap in the refrigerator.
In Japan, White strawberries were given the name Hatsukoi no Kaori, which roughly translates to the “scent of first love.” White strawberries are highly desired for their rarity, but cultivation is challenging, and only about ten percent of the fruits grown are successfully developed to be marketed under the White strawberry name. The unusual fruits are very similar to conventional red strawberries, but during cultivation, the berries are limited in their exposure to sunlight and lack a protein that gives the fruit it's bright red coloring when mature. Once selected and packaged for markets, White strawberries are often sold at very high prices, with individual fruits selling for ten dollars each and some packs selling for even higher depending on the shape, size, number of berries, and appearance. Due to their high luxury price tag, White strawberries are traditionally given as gifts to friends and family for special occasions and holidays.
White strawberries were created from natural crossbreeding trials and are native to multiple regions around the world, highly developed in Europe and Japan for commercial cultivation. In Japan, White strawberries are grown in the Saga and Nara prefectures, sold through specialty grocers and markets, and the fruits are approved for cultivation through select growers to maintain its rare reputation.
