The strawberry is a special spring crop in Harvest Moon: Back to Nature. Its seeds become available at the supermarket after shipping 100 turnips, 100 potatoes, 100 cucumbers, and 100 cabbages. Strawberry seeds are cheap and renewable, making it one of the best crops for spring.
Where to buy Seeds: At the Supermarket (After shipping 100 each of the other spring crops)
Days to Grow: 8 days
Renewable Crop: Yes, 6 days to regrow
Important Note: Each bag of seeds has 9 seeds that will fill a 3×3 square of tilled soil when planted. If you plant any seed on untilled soil, it will not grow and you will lose it forever.
Profit Using 3×3 and Fat-C Method
For renewable crops, we will calculate the profit per bag per day with the formula (Maximum Profit per Season/30 days), assuming you started planting on the first day of the season.

The Fat-C Method
This planting method involves tilling a 3×3 square of soil and leaving one square on the edge untilled, planting just 8 crops instead of 9. This is the most efficient method of planting crops during the early stages of the game since the center crop is inaccessible without an upgraded watering can.
You can use strawberries in various sweets like cakes, juices and ice cream.
As Main Ingredient: Fruit Juice, Fruit Latte, Mixed Juice, Mixed Latte, Strawberry Jam, Strawberry Milk
As Optional Ingredient: Cake, Chocolate Cake, Ice Cream, Salad, Sandwich
Most people in the game will react positively when receiving strawberries. Instead of giving the crop directly as a present, it is better to first create a recipe using it.
