This review considers the history and production of the modern strawberry (Fragaria xananassa) in the United States and worldwide. Strawberry production in the Upper Midwest, specifically Minnesota, is limited to traditional outdoor production methods during the growing season. Herein the possibilities for developing indoor, year-round strawberry production in Minnesota are explored. This new market could open the door for growers to sell locally grown strawberries to consumers who have shown a strong affinity for locally grown fruits.
