The Sweetest Fruit of All

strawberries are a delicious and nutritious fruit that has been cultivated for centuries. These strawberries are known for their distinct flavor and aroma, making them a popular choice for desserts, jams, and other sweet treats.

Egypt has a long history of cultivating strawberries, dating back to ancient times. In fact, it is believed that the ancient Egyptians used strawberries for medicinal purposes and even offered them to their gods as a symbol of perfection.

One of the unique features of Egyptian strawberries is their flavor profile. They have a sweet and tangy taste that is slightly different from other varieties of strawberries. This flavor is due to the specific combination of soil, water, and weather conditions that are found in Egypt.

The fact that frozen strawberries have a lengthy shelf life of up to 24 months makes them a perfect choice for customers to import. Hence, there is no chance that the strawberries will become rotting or damaged.

Over the years, Egyptian strawberry output has continuously increased, with an emphasis on updating farming methods to raise yields and quality. Exports to nations around the world, particularly those in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, have increased as a result.

Egypt is considered the fourth largest strawberry producer in the world.

According to studies, Egypt exports yearly about 215,000 tons, which represents 6% of its total exports. 

With warm days and cool nights, Egypt's climate is perfect for growing strawberries, which thrive in the right environment. In the Nile Delta area, where the fertile soil and plentiful water supply make for perfect growth circumstances, Egyptian strawberries are often farmed.

Strawberries are typically picked in Egypt from December to April, with March being the peak month.
