Dating back to ancient Roman times, strawberries have always been seen as a romantic fruit. In fact, these luscious berries are the symbol for Venus, the Roman goddess of love. It only makes sense when you consider that they're naturally heart-shaped and red in hue.

Such a reputation has continued over centuries. Many consider strawberries the Valentine's Day fruit, making it the perfect romantic dessert to get you in the mood. They're also packed with Vitamin C, which studies show helps to keep your blood flowing. Plus, strawberries are ideal for dipping into warm, melted chocolate (another known aphrodisiac) and sharing with your partner.
