I don't know if you should allow your daughter to eat that. It looks mutated to me. You'd better "test" it to be sure its safe.

I took your advice and "tested" it first Alix. I was not disappointed.

The picture with the dog is the larger strawberries smaller brother. This one looked like 4 berries together.

My folks used to have a strawberry patch beside their deck. I've seen large strawberries before. Maybe not as large as yours, but I don't recall the flavor suffering because of its size. Good going!

I hope you have lots of room for grandchildren GB. You know that she is now destined to give birth to quintuplets don't you?

Neat strawberry!

she'd love Poteet, TX.....it's known as the strawberry capital and its water tower is topped with.....you guessed it "a huge strawberry" instead of what usually passes for a water storage tank.......you probably could google it.....when they're in season you can pick your own for a small price and the kids have a lot of fun doing it
