Strawberry (binomial name Fragaria × ananassa) is a widely cultivated and appreciated fruit with characteristic aroma, bright red colour, juicy texture, and sweetness.[1]

Strawberries were served as a dessert at the Welcoming Feast of 1991.[2] Professor Armando Dippet had ling and strawberries planted on the mountains around Hogwarts Castle in his time as Headmaster.[3] It is also a known flavour of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans and of ice cream. They were also served at the Welcoming Feast of 1995.

Berry Bliss, a blend of herbal tea made by the Muggle company Pollington & Newman's, contained or was flavoured with strawberry, in addition to cranberry and raspberry.[4]
