How to Grow Strawberries

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • Strawberries can be grown in containers or in your garden bed, and can produce for up to five years if well-tended. They can even be grown in a reusable shopping tote
  • Common strawberry varieties and general growing guidelines for matted rows and hills systems are included
  • Strawberries are high in immune-boosting nutrients such as vitamin C, anthocyanins, ellagitannins, flavonols, terpenoids, phenolic and ellagic acids that help fight infections. They also contain manganese, folate, potassium and copper
  • Commercial strawberries are heavily contaminated with pesticides and there’s no guarantee that organic strawberries are truly organic when bought at the grocery store
  • While an organic grower will not use chemical fumigants, the nurseries where the plants are started do. These plants are then sold to both conventional and organic growers, and despite their toxic start, they qualify for organic certification when harvested on an organic farm

Strawberries, a symbol of love, also have a lot to offer those passionate about their health. High in immune-boosting nutrients such as vitamin C, anthocyanins, ellagitannins, flavonols, terpenoids, phenolic and ellagic acids, strawberries help fight infections. They're also packed with manganese and folate, potassium with its co-factoring enzyme, superoxide dismutase and minerals like copper for the healthy development of red blood cells.
