Strawberry Pie

Eventhough i couldn't able to partcipate in 'jihva for mango' event, iam happy that i making it to Strawberry event being hosted by bakingfairy. Back in india, seeing pictures of strawberries, i used to think 'oh!! its very beautiful..how it tastes like??where can i eat this fruit?? '. Finally God listened to me, I with my family went to North-East India tour and there i saw this fruit same like my book strawberries and i coudn't wait but taste..then immediate reaction was 'Is this the same fruit??' because it is having nut in it and having citrus taste. I was mistaken..its lychee (litchi)fruit not strawberries. Again in US, i saw the same type of fruit but this time i know for sure iam seeing strawberries only(no more confusion :-)).
