This year’s Wimbledon tournament now under way and is due to finish on the 10th July 2016. Each year visitors of the event consume around 28,000 kilos of Strawberries, so we thought we would find out why strawberries are closely associated with the Wimbledon Championships.
Strawberries are always just at their best at the end of June beginning of July, and during the very first Wimbledon Tournament 130 years ago strawberries and cream were served up. Apparently French writers also wrote about the ladies love at that time for strawberries. So it looks at though the tradition of strawberries and Wimbledon is one that started right at the beginning of its conception and has continued ever since.
