Episode 17 - Food Fable: Strawberries

Plated Earth Food Fables are original short historical fiction stories about produce and its ability to connect people, culture, and history. This Food Fable tells the story of a French spy who traveled to Chile in the 1700s on an expedition entrusted to him by Louis XIV. By his own account, we hear how and why this French spy came across the Chilean strawberry, which he brought home to France, opening the door for the cross between Chilean and Virginia cultivars – the ancestors of our modern-day beloved strawberry.
