The Florida Strawberry Industry over the past decade has been a mecca for sweet luscious strawberries. In Hillsborough County, about 15 percent of the nation's berries are virtually all the berries grown during the winter. The commodity has an impact on the Plant City community that is approaching $200 million. The value of this commodity has more than tripled in the last two decades and people in the industry are preparing to move forward into the 21st century.
The history, research and development, community service, annual events and other facets of the strawberry industry can be explored and discovered. Each of these areas are very important to the success of the Florida Strawberry Industry as well as the Flordia Strawberry Growers Association.
