Discover magazine (one of my non-Herb Companion faves) features a magnified (by a scanning electron microscope) image of a strawberry (Fragaria spp.). Check it out; it's really cool. 

The make-up of the fruit is clearly visible, with the seeds looking like boulders in a red sea. Plus, they give a great tip for teeth whitening, which works because of the fruit's malic acid. (Mix crushed strawberries with baking soda.)
