We bet the number of seeds on one strawberry will surprise you.

We eat a lot of strawberries. In fact, 94 percent of people in the United States eat strawberries, and the average American eats over five pounds each year! But, how much do you actually know about this juicy red berry? Did you know that strawberries are actually a member of the rose family? Or that California alone produces enough strawberries (1 billion pounds each year) to go around the world fifteen times if they were laid end-to-end?

Want to test your knowledge of this popular berry? Try guessing how many seeds the average strawberry contains. Is it…

A). 65? The same as the grams of sugar in a 20-ounce bottle of Coca Cola
