Strawberries -

The Strawberry is a fruit native to both North and South America, greatly improved by cultivation and now grown in a number of choice varieties. The most popular types are developments of the Pine or "Chili" strawberry, indigenous to North America but so styled because it was first introduced into Europe from Chile.

Strawberries are now grown in nearly every state. Especially large crops are raised in New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Florida and California.

On account of the improved means of transportation, the season in the New York market, formerly limited to about three weeks, now extends over four months at moderate prices - and all the year for those who are willing to pay higher rates. The earliest supplies come from Florida, and the latest from New York and some of the New England States and Canada. Great quantities are canned and otherwise preserved both for domestic use and exportation.
