This is the 21595th access of this file since its transfer to this URL on Mar 25, 1996.
Prior to the site transfer, this page had recieved OVER 23900 acesses since Mar 25, 1995.

The Strawberry Facts Page is a NON-COMMERCIAL site. Any links and information provided here is done so based entirely on the fact that it has some small relevance to the topic of Strawberries or, occationally, another type of fruit. Obtaining a link here has been, is, and will remain, free to places that so qualify. Two-way links are appreciated but are by no means required.

Many of the items in these pages are ones that I have have found and researched on my own, but quite a number of thoughtful people have provided me with many more items than I could ever have located on my own. To all of these, and anyone else who adds their knowledge and wisdom to this site in the future, I send a hearty THANK YOU! For if it weren't for you, this page wouldn't be half of what it is today.

Previous visitors to The Strawberry Facts Page at the original URL will note that this site has undergone a substantial face lift. In particular, each section of this site is now a separate file in an attempt to reduce the page access time for people with slower connections. Now you only need to load the strawberry information you are particularily interested in instead of everything all at once.

Also Note:
Collecting Strawberry Facts began as a lighthearted hobby of mine. Much to my pleasure this little offshoot of my web site has been receiving rave reviews and much traffic, and so I have been trying to make this an even more interesting and useful Web Stop. With this in mind, I have tried to include as many useful links and other information as I can. However, I am still far and away from being any kind of expert on strawberries, and if it isn't on this page (or linked from this page) I probably don't know where to find it or what the answer is.

[Under Construction] However, as this page is constantly under construction, please feel free to help me to make this an even better and more useful site by letting me know about any Strawberry things I'm missing, answering some of the unanswered questions, or providing anything that you know which is somehow related to the topic of Strawberries and that you would like to see shared with the Web on The Strawberry Facts Page.

Also, feel free to ask me any Strawberry related questions. If its not here already I probably won't be able to answer right away, but I can always post your question and see what turns up.
