China: 7th International Strawberry Symposium in Beijing

The seventh International Strawberry Symposium is currently taking place in Beijing (Feb 18-22). The event was founded in 1988 by the International Society for Horticultural Science and is held every four years. This is the first time an Asian nation has hosted the event.

More than 100 types of strawberry are on display, including Britain's pineberry and a variety from Japan that tastes like chocolate.

The garden will feature a solar greenhouse display containing 27 different Chinese varieties that have been bred to cater specifically for Asian tastes - softer and sweeter than most varieties.
