Why are wild strawberries so much smaller than the ones we buy in the store?

    Wild fruits will be smaller than farm grown ones because they have fewer inputs (fertilizer, pesticides). Not to mention genetically modified and cultivated fruit that are bred to be a certain size.

    The wild strawberries we find in some US forests are smaller, but much sweeter, than those you can typically buy in stores. Store bought berries may be hybrids of wild and European strawberries, pumped full of fertilizers to increase their size (which in turn dilutes taste), or else genetically modified.
