Q:

How many strawberries are there in a pint?

A:

One pint of strawberries is about 12 large strawberries, 24 medium-sized strawberries or 36 small strawberries. The actual amount of strawberries in a pint, however, is likely to vary based on the fluctuation in size of individual berries.

A pint is equivalent to about 3 1/4 cups of whole strawberries or between 1 1/2 to 2 1/4 cups of sliced strawberries. A pint is a measure of volume that equals approximately 2 cups. It is the standard unit of measurement between cups and quarts. Since a quart is 4 cups, pints are used to measure units of volume between 2 and 4 cups.

As of 2014, an American eats an average of about 3.4 pounds of strawberries each year, slightly more than 2 pints. The consumption of strawberries is thought to increase the flow of blood and oxygen. They are rich in vitamin C, fiber, folic acid and potassium. Strawberries are also the only known fruit with seeds located on the outside. Each strawberry contains approximately 200 seeds.

Belgians enjoy eating strawberries so much that they have an entire museum dedicated to them, and a member of Napoleon's court was said to bathe in 22 pounds of strawberries on a regular basis.
