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!

i'm going to have to agree with everyone else- they look JUST LIKE wild strawberries we used to have everywhere in maine... which were amazingly sweet little jewels of flavor. we used to eat them on the deck over the river with fresh cream while our swimsuits dried on our brown little bodies. holy crap those were the days.

I forgot what they were called but I saw strawberries and tomatoes combined together this weekend at the supermarket. they looked like tomatoes that were shaped like strawberries and still on their vine. they were too expensive to experiment with.

Yeah, I was wondering where they grow, because they look like the wild strawberries that grow on my grandparent's acreage.
