Where do strawberries grow?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Davidoc, May 4, 2003.

  1. Is there a magical strawberry bush that gives strawbery goodness to all passerbys? I figure they come from a plant of some sort. I could, however be wrong about this. What do YOU think?
  2. they grow in bushes, as does every berry i can think of...

    The ones that I've picked grow in small leafy bushes. They're sometimes kind hard to see because they hide deep inside. Don't reach into deep though because you might fall into the land of Narnia.

    Nerd moment: They're not berries. They're actually part of the rose family.

    How about 'forest strawberries' then, what's the term in english for these small, tasty strawberries growing in the woods? And yes, they grow in small bushes too :)
  12. the ones you see in stores arent wild strawberries, they are farmed, the wild ones arent as sweet and are pretty small. but strawberries, wild or not, grow on little leafy bushes, about a foot and a half high and about a foot and a half in diameter, they have large picking fields in the country, you can pick them yourself, or buy them, let me tell you, many a young un had their first taste of real labour at these places, the smell makes you sick after a while, theres no shade, your in the sun for about 8 hours a day, and you get payed 25 cents a carton you pick, and it gets pretty unfun, thank god i never decided to do it. me and my mom go picking every three years, we make enough jam and ice cream topping to last us more then that long. and.....NOW YOU KNOW

  16. The big, red, tasteless strawberries all come from California. The small, not-quite-so-red, TASTY ones come from either Florida or the Great Lakes region.

    a happy mountaineer pisses clear, yellow and stinky, take a drinky. no, wait, thats not it:D

    Theres a rhyme like that one that has something to do with what berries are good to eat, and what arent, but of course i cant remember it.
  18. The rhyme you started was funny. I don't know the other but I've heard it before, that much I am sure of. Got any other rhymes for us??
