On av­er­age, there are 200 seeds in a straw­berry. Straw­ber­ries are a mem­ber of the rose fam­ily. In ad­di­tion to vi­ta­min C, straw­ber­ries also con­tain an­tiox­i­dants, fiber and fo­late. Florida is sec­ond in straw­berry pro­duc­tion, topped only by Cal­i­for­nia. Florida in 2014 pro­duced about 200 mil­lion pounds of straw­ber­ries on nearly 11,000 acres, for a to­tal crop value of more than $306 mil­lion.
