There are yellow, blue, white, black, purple strawberries too. Some strawberries are even the size of apples.
Health Benefits of Strawberries
A large orange provides about 86 calories and 98 milligrams of Vitamin C, or 163 percent of your daily recommended intake. A serving of strawberries (about 10 strawberries) is 60 calories and offers almost 177 percent of your Vitamin C for the day. When it comes to the common cold, vitamin C may not be a cure. But some studies show that it may help prevent more serious complications. Strawberries may also improve blood antioxidant status, decrease oxidative stress, inhibit inflammation, improve vascular function, improve the blood lipid profile and reduce the harmful oxidation of LDL-cholesterol.
