Fruit Face-Off #5

Welcome to our final Westminster Fruit Face-Off!

Here are some true or false questions to get you thinking about our familiar fruit… the strawberry!

True or False? - Strawberries are the only fruit that wear their seeds on the outside.


True! The average berry has over 200 seeds on it.

True or False? - The strawberry plant is a perennial plant.

True! This means if you plant one now, it will come back next year and the following and the year after that. It may not bear fruit immediately, but once it does, it will remain productive for about five years.

Now try these ones about our unfamiliar fruit - which may be familiar to some of you - the blackberry!

True or False? - Blackberries are a good source of antioxidants (healthy vitamins like C, D and beta-carotene).

True! The dark blue colour ensures blackberries have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all fruits. But remember, if you want to get the most out of their health benefits, you need to eat them fresh or frozen (not in pies!).

True or False? - Blackberries are not a good fruit to add to salads or fruit smoothies.

False! Blackberries have a sweet, tart flavour, making them a perfect addition to salads or fruit smoothies. They can also be used as a topping for yogurt. Blackberries can be enjoyed by themselves, as a light snack, or as a dessert.


It might be a close vote this week - Does Westminster love the strawberry or the blackberry?
