Strawberry - Nosy Crow Skip to content

The strawberry in the book might look a little different to the ones you see in the shops! That’s because this drawing was made over 400 years ago and was likely based on a wild strawberry plant. Wild strawberries are smaller and have more seeds than the ones that are grown for food today, which humans have made bigger and juicier, and have smaller seeds!
