The strawberry is the most popular soft fruit. Eaten in Ireland, Strawberries are a delicious low calorie summer fruit which contain no fat and although they are low in sugar, they are sweet enough to be eaten without added sugar. This makes them ideal as a dessert (with cream, in flans & cakes fromage frais and as a jam) or as a tasty snack for slimmers. The Irish strawberry season has been successfully extended through new varieties and growing techniques.
