Strawberries by Regency Gentleman

“Mrs. Elton, in all her apparatus of happiness, her large bonnet
and her basket, was very ready to lead the way in gathering,
accepting, or talking–strawberries, and only strawberries,
could now be thought or spoken of.–“The best fruit in England–
every body’s favourite…”
(Dear Mrs E on picking Mr. Knightley’s delicious strawberries at Donwell Abbey.) Read more about the history of cultivated strawberries here.
