    Explanation
    The garden strawberry was first bred in France. This is because France is known to have a long history of cultivating strawberries and developing new varieties. The first recorded instance of garden strawberries being bred is attributed to a French engineer and botanist named Amédée-François Frézier, who brought back a Chilean strawberry plant and successfully crossbred it with a European variety in the 18th century. This resulted in the creation of the modern garden strawberry that we know today.
