Abstract or Summary
  • The cultivated strawberry, Fragaria x ananassa, resulted from a cross between two wild strawberries: Fragaria virginiana (meadow strawberry), which is native throughout much of North America, and Fragaria chiloensis, which is native to the Pacific coast of North and South America. Colonists in eastern North America sent the meadow strawberry, F. virginiana, back to Europe. A French spy monitoring the Spanish in Chile, who was also a botanist, brought plants of F. chiloensis, which had been improved greatly by native South Americans, back to Europe. Whether by chance or design, the two species crossed, and the offspring became the cultivated strawberry we know today.
