Most wild strawberries are much smaller than the domesticated ones you or I might grow in our gardens.
The strawberry on the left is one of several wild species, while the ones on the left are modern domesticated strawberries.
Clearly one of the major traits early strawberry growers selected for was bigger fruits. Which makes sense since it takes about the same amount of time an effort to pick a strawberry either way, but if you’re picking the ones on the right you’ll have more pounds of fruit picked at the end of the day.
Fair disclosure, I mostly stole this answer from my own writing elsewhere on the web (citation 1).
