Strawberries are of the rose plant family Rosaceae and genus Fragaria. There are over 20 different species and hundreds of varieties. In addition, there are three different "Types" of strawberries: June-Bearing, Ever-Bearing and Day-Neutral. The different types do require some different growing maintenance to achieve a good size crop in your home garden year after year.

| Thanks everyone for the and acorns. I'm glad you like the info on strawberries. 3 things I learned researching:|
1) The fruit has seed sacks, not individual seeds on the outside (which I should have know since I have started strawberries from seed and the seeds are tiny)
2) The June-Bearing types form their flowering within the crown in the fall
3) The fruit does not continue to ripen once picked (they just rot if left too long)
Great info here (no matter where you garden): http://strawberryplants.org/
