Get ready to savor this sweet strawberry delight on September 28th for National Strawberry Cream Pie Day. 

Strawberries have been enjoyed by humans since the days of Ancient Rome as far back as 234 BCE. However, most of the strawberries that we eat today are a cross between the Virginia strawberry, discovered by European colonialists in North America in 1588, and the Chilean strawberry, which was brought back to Europe from its namesake country in 1714 by Amédée-François Frézier.

This garden variety strawberry was first cultivated in the 1750s in Brittany, France. Despite the popularity of this stable cross-breed, there are over 100 different species of strawberry grown throughout the world, each with its own unique taste and presentation. The largest of these species is the Japanese Amaou with the record holder weighing in at nearly 9 oz.

The history of the strawberry cream pie itself is a little less well-known. The sugar cream pie was a quick hit in the mid-1800s with other successes like the Boston cream pie and fruity cream pies, like the strawberry cream pie, coming sometime later, near the turn of the century. 

So be sure to leave some room for dessert and celebrate this fruity sweet treat for National Strawberry Cream Pie Day on September 28th.
