A Stupid Question

I love strawberries. When I was a kid, I wouldn't eat them. I didn't like the little prickly hairy seeds on the outside. I've since overcome that aversion & I think strawberries are about the world's most perfect food. As I was munching on some strawberries at lunch today I couldn't help but wonder, why do strawberries have a hollow inside? There is a hole in the middle of every berry. Why?

On the Food Network, I once saw a lady take big strawberries and fill the hole with cheesecake filling and then cover them in chocolate. I think that must be why God created strawberries with a hole in the middle.

Erin, I'm sure you're quite right. What a fabulously yummy idea!
