I have seen pictures in advertisements of plants such as strawberries that can grow in miniaturized bushes the sized of many house plants. Are there such types of fruit bearing plants?

An ordinary strawberry plant by itself is not very large, but there are also some tiny more decorative varieties often grown as edging plants or in containers. These would include the runnerless alpine varieties such as "Ruegen" and ornamental varieties such as "Pink Panda". These plants make delicious berries but they, too, are very small.
