strawberries

Hi, I have grown some strawberries which I purchased this year. They have all grown very well and look healthy. However some of the ripe red strawberries feel slightly prickly. Does anyone know what the cause may be and if they are still edible. Thanks.

    Fresh as opposed to shop bought strawberries have hooks/hairs attached to the external seeds, thats probably what you are feeling, nothing to worry about they can still be eaten.
