Strawberries & Cream = Wimbledon

Strawberries and cream are essentials to enjoy the British summer. They’re so popular that they become the summer treat over the 2-week Wimbledon Championship.

We did a bit of research and found a few interesting facts about the Strawberries and Cream at Wimbledon:

 

Strawberries and Cream at Wimbledon:

  • Usually Grade I Kent strawberries
  • Around 28,000kg consumed during fortnight
  • Around 8,615 punnets containing minimum of 10 berries consumed daily
  • Served with more than 7,000 litres of fresh cream
  • Strawberries picked day before being served
  • They arrive at Wimbledon at 5.30am before being hulled
  • The price of 10 strawberries and cream in 1994 was £1.70 (Can you guess how much is the price of 10 strawberries and cream this year?)
