California strawberries are grown by hundreds of family farmers who produce nearly 90 percent of the nation’s strawberries. Harvested year-round along the coast, California strawberries are low in sugar, high in vitamin C, and provide essential nutrients, fiber, and health-promoting phytochemicals. Research suggests eating just a serving of eight strawberries a day may help manage diabetes, improve heart health, support brain health, and reduce the risk of some cancers. With an emphasis on sustainable farming practices, the California Strawberry Commission is focused on production and nutrition research, food safety training and education, marketing and communications, trade relations and public policy.
