Strawberries are usually at their best during the summer months (mid-June through late-August). However, new technological advances in agriculture have made strawberries available year round.

The difference in taste could be due to the fact that people grow off-season strawberries in an artificial environment without soil. I don’t think that using artificial environments to grow strawberries is the best thing for the environment, so I try to avoid off-season strawberries whenever possible.
