Strawberry Season Is Here
I’m half drooling and half jumping for joy. Why, you ask? Well, for starters it’s winter and more so because it’s strawberry season! I mean, that’s only like my favourite kind of berry. So hugs and smoothies all around because this post is for strawberry lovers!
Did You Know?
Red, juicy and conically shaped, the strawberry is a member of the rose family and has grown in the wild for centuries. Strawberries are the only fruit with seeds on the outside.
Strawberry To The Rescue.
They are full of antioxidants. Strawberries are perfect for curbing cardiovascular disease, cancer, and delaying aging. Antioxidants are also known to boost the immune system and help keep off diseases like the cold and flu.
Strawberries In Style
This fun fruity print never goes out of style. We think strawberries look awesome on dresses, purses, shoes, accessories, and nails. And Ahem, not to forget lingerie (Caution! Berry Naughty Stuff Ahead.).
Mahabaleshwar (also known as the Land of Strawberries) is a not such a long drive away from Mumbai and is every strawberry lover’s paradise. If you are a true fan, please drive the distance for unparalleled strawberry goodness. If you manage to go there, please visit Mapro Gardens in Mahabaleshwar and don’t forget to have the fresh strawberries and cream there. It is, truly, to die for. You can also see fresh strawberries growing there. You can purchase jams, jellies and strawberry crush while you are at it.
InOnIt Special Tip: Make shots with Strawberry crush (available everywhere). All you need to do is add vodka to the pulp, and you have the yummiest flavoured shots ever. It’s what we call a berry naughty concoction.
Strawberries Closer Home
If you haven’t got the chance to leave the city, don’t sweat it. Just head over to Bachelors in town (Charni Road, Mumbai) for some delicious strawberries and fresh cream. The taste and drive will both be well worth it. For those of you who don’t live in Mumbai, please make a mental note to visit when here.
Strawberry lovers can also try the fresh strawberry ice cream at Naturals. A true strawberry fan will really appreciate it.
Looks like strawberries have been deliciously capturing imaginations and influencing people for decades now and will continue to do so decades to come. Take a look
