California is responsible for 85 % of the domestic strawberry crop. Strawberries thrive along the California coast because western ocean exposure and Pacific winds insulate the fields from extreme temperatures and weather. These factors work together to create the perfect growing conditions. Peak production occurs in April, May and June. During this time California strawberry growers are producing 50 million pounds of strawberries per week.

The name strawberry most likely comes from children in the nineteenth century threading the berries onto straw and then offering them for sale.

Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C. They are cholesterol and sodium free and are high in fiber. Healthy and sweet, a great combination.
