9 06 2011
Vicki Adrian

You are so smart! 🙂 (I had to google too!) I love that coffee cake recipe! It takes a little extra bit of work but totally worth it!

Summer Strawberry gourmet basket giveaway.

My favorite strawberry dessert is a mini pavlova with strawberries – sometimes with ice cream, sometimes with cool whip or whipped cream,

The average strawberry supposedly has 200 seeds, but who counts them?

9 06 2011
Vicki Adrian

Ohhh…sounds decadent! There is not really a strawberry dessert that I don’t like! 🙂

Genia

I am going to go with 201 just to be different! LOL And I love love love Strawberry Poke Cake! Ever had it? Delicious and really easy! Happy summer!

Yum! I can go with any kind of homemade ice cream, but strawberry is one of my husband’s favorites! Thanks much! ~Vicki

Lois Gier

I guess I’ll be like everyone else and say 200. Our favorite recipe is just plain strawberries on shortcake with cream.

9 06 2011
Barbara Birk

I guess 200 seeds on a strawberry seems to be the correct answer! I love chocolate covered strawberries and I make a sweet little mini cupcake called a Strawberry Puffcake that tastes just like them. My family also loves Strawberry Stuffed French Toast, yummy and sweet enough to be considered a desert!

9 06 2011
Fayetta Moline

My favorite strawberry salad is Strawberry pretzel salad. We always have it at every family get together.
Number of seeds is 84 for the average berry.

9 06 2011
Vicki Adrian

Good choice Fayetta…I had never had that salad until we moved to Kansas, but it is delicious!

9 06 2011
Mary Ann Miller

Hmmmmm–I’m guessing 200??? Favorite strawberry dessert is just a slice of homemade strawberry angel food cake, covered in strawberries, with whipped cream on top.

9 06 2011
Vicki Adrian

Mmmmmmmm…good!

9 06 2011
Debbie

I’ll guess 60 and our favorite is to make strawberry ice cream…it’s SO delicious!!!

9 06 2011
Pam Rush

Vicki: Leland tells me there are about 200 seeds. He’s the gardener at our home. Also, I think the Rhubarb~Strawberry Coffee Cake is the family favorite. Nothing like voting on your own recipe!! 😉

9 06 2011
Vicki Adrian

Pam…I completely agree…that Strawberry Rhubarb Coffee Cake is a WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!!!!! Amazing! (& I think it is just fine to vote on your own recipe when it’s that good!) 🙂 ~Vicki

Penny Wilt

Around 200 seeds seems to be the average… 🙂 I was in the store when you were making the basket and it looked amazing! It would be so fun to win it!! I make no-bake cheesecake and slice strawberries for the topping. Delicious!!

9 06 2011
Vicki Adrian

Awww…thank you Penny! The no-bake cheesecake sounds refreshing…and you could put strawberries on just about anything and I will be happy! Good luck on our drawing! The basket did turn out pretty good if I do say so myself! 🙂

As others have done, I googled it to find out how many seeds are in one average sized strawberry. I found it interesting that all of the search results that I saw said 200 seeds. Hmmm , what if the original person that counted 200 seeds was wrong and now everyone is copying their number because they do not want to count the number themselves?!

Strawberries and homemade ice cream are our favorite way to eat strawberries!

9 06 2011
Chelsea

I tried counting the seeds on every strawberry in the case I bought at the store…but I got bored 😛 Thank goodness for Google–it says 200! Saved me a lot of work 🙂 My family’s favorite recipe is a humble strawberry shortcake with whip cream on top! Love the contrasting textures and the shortcake is benign enough to really showcase the deliciousness of a fresh strawberry (not to mention soak up all the precious juice!).

10 06 2011
cathy

Well how about 200 🙂 seeds in each berry?! Just guessing! We’re pretty simple folk here, love them wash, sliced and sprinkled with sugar, if they need it!! My favorite thing to do with all the surplus strawberries, is to make strawberry rhubarb jam or strawberry jalapeno jam, I also make a truly yummy strawberry lemon marmalade!

10 06 2011
Trisha Wray

200 seeds on a strawberry! 😉 My sister-in-law makes a strawberry dessert that we all love. I don’t know the name of it but it has angelfood cake, strawberries, Cool Whip, vanilla ice cream, vanilla pudding, etc… It’s delicious! My son and I (he’s 5) like to make fresh fruit smoothies with strawberries, bananas, vanilla yogurt, milk & honey. YUM!

10 06 2011
Kathy Turnquist

Well I guess the answer is 200 seeds. Sounds like a lot doesn’t it. I like strawberry shortcake and cheesecake. And I like to just eat a strawberry. lol

10 06 2011
Robbie Thomas

The average strawberry has about 200 seeds. Our family enjoys a dessert called, “Strawberry Fluff”. It has a graham cracker crust and strawberries, sugar, and cream beat for 10-12 minutes and then frozen! It is so yummy!!

10 06 2011
Therese

200 seeds avg in strawberry, and strawberry pie is our favorite summertime treat!

10 06 2011
Joan Smith

Sounds like 200 seeds are the average!! There are so many wonderful strawberry desserts, but I just had Strawberry Shortcake for lunch this past week while visiting my mom at the Sterling House in Wellington. And, that all time favorite is just so simple… I
love strawberries with anything!!

Vicki Adrian

Good Morning Joan…Just wanted you to know that you are our WINNER of the Strawberry Theme Basket for last week’s Giveaway at Adrians! Congratulations! Your guess of 200 seeds (according to Google) is correct and of course, Strawberry Shortcake was a big favorite theme with our ladies. Thank you to all that entered our contest! Keep watching for new ones! In fact, you can check out this week’s giveaway at http://wildfireapp.com/website/6/contests/129901 to enter! Thanks again! Vicki Adrian

Jo Owen

There are 200 seeds in the average strawberry. We love strawberry popsicles and chocolate covered strawberries

10 06 2011
Leslie Mekelburg

Staying with the google answer I’ll say 199 seeds in a strawberry. There are two schools of thought at our house on how to eat strawberries: one is chocolate dipped and the other is dipped in powered sugar. The absolute best way is to buy the Chocolate Covered Strawberries from the Kopper Kettle Chocolate Store in Van Buren Arkansas. They wrap the entire berry in fondant and then dip it in chocolate. Messy but delicious!

10 06 2011
Michele Musick

The average strawberry has 200 seeds. My fave is the old fashioned bisquit style strawberry shortcake still warm from the oven. Yum

10 06 2011
Becky Allen Bouska

200 and strawberry pizza is the best

I am going to say 112 seeds is the average (this was my husband’s guess 😉 ) Our fave strawberry dessert is a Pineapple Strawberry Lush dessert. Has angel food cake, vanilla pudding, crushed pineapple, strawberries….delicious!!!!!

10 06 2011
Vicki Adrian

Hi Sarah…Would you be willing to share that recipe? I over-bought vanilla pudding (there are at least 12 boxes in my pantry right now) and I am looking for ways to use those babies up! ~Vicki

Judy Banz

According to google, 200 seeds – favorite strawberry dessert – strawberries over angel food cake with REAL whipped cream!

10 06 2011
Monica Hendershot`

My familes favorite is fresh strawberries and whipped cream over pound cake. And I would say there are close to 200 tiny black seeds on the average strawberry, but I lost count 🙂

10 06 2011
Pat Schmidt

I think there are just enough seeds to make a strawberry the perfect fruit! I like to use strawberries in a smoothie with skim milk, fat-free plain yogurt and banana.

10 06 2011
Nancy Ellwood

It seems that 200 seeds is the popular answer. My family’s favorite strawberry dessert is fresh strawberry pie.

10 06 2011
Marie Koehn

Too many favorite strawberry desserts. I would say 2 of my favorites are strawberry pretzel dessert and an angel food cake frosted with strawberry ice cream. And there are approximately 200 seeds per berry.

10 06 2011

13 06 2011
Kim Shore

I will go along with the other’s and say that there are an average of 200 seeds in one stawberry. My favorite strawberry recipe would have to be strawberry shortcake. My second runner-up would be your Strawberry Twinkie dessert. I made it for my Bunko group and it was a winner – even if I wasn’t!
