    英名:Strawberry

    由來:

    草莓屬薔薇科多年生草本植物,栽培種草莓為智利草莓與北美洲野生紅色草莓雜交種為溫帶國家主要小果類水果。而台灣草莓栽培歷史最早可溯自1934年,由日本引進9個品種,於陽明山高冷地帶試作,唯因當時的品種抗菌力差,難達成經濟栽培;至民國37年,前台北區農改場再引進「福羽」試作,蘆洲農友引進「馬歇爾」,開始小規模經濟栽培,而引起栽培熱潮;民國68年,苗栗縣大湖區農會在新竹區農改場(今桃園區農改場)技術指導下,試辦觀光草莓園一舉成功,開啟觀光草莓之風;又民國72年,開始辦理共同運銷,致使草莓產業由純醉加工蛻變為以鮮果為主,加工為副之產業,也因而提高價格,增加農民收益。

    straw的意思,除了吸管外,還有稻草、麥桿、沒有價值的東西這些意思,所以依照上文的由來,應該是因為早期草莓根本價值不高,所以才變成"straw"berry這個英文。不過英文這種東西很難說啦~~有些字為什麼是那樣也沒有什麼正確的由來,像jaywalk蛇行,為什麼jay在走路就叫做蛇行呢?但是其實拆字來背是不錯的,這樣來背的確比較不會忘,而字為什麼會這樣呢?其實我覺得沒有什麼重要的吧~~^^

    EtymologyThe name is derived from Old English streawberige which is a compound of streaw meaning "straw" and berige meaning "berry". The reason for this is unclear. It may derive from the strawlike appearance of the runners, or from an obsolete denotation of straw, meaning "chaff", referring to the scattered appearance of the achenes.其它的資訊請參照下列網址

    Interestingly, in other Germanic countries there is a tradition of collecting wild strawberries by threading them on straws. In those countries people find straw-berry to be an easy word to learn considering their association with straws.

    straw還有麥桿的意思

    草帽叫straw hat

    叫strawberry大概是因為草莓戴著一鼎可愛的帽子
