Strawberries surface is delicate, and soft. Underneath the surface, the flesh is typically aqueous, firm but tender, and sometimes crisp with a succulent nature. The seeds on the outside also provide a subtle crunch. Strawberries release a fragrant, fruity aroma best when harvested at the perfect time. Depending on the variety, they can be syrupy-sweet, fruity, sweet-tart, candy-like, too sweet with balanced acidity.
