Strawberry is a multi-harvest fruit crop that produces one strawberry per harvest with a slight probability of more. This crop can only be acquired during the Egg Festival on Spring 13, thus it's a good plan for players to earn as much money as possible in order to buy as many packets of Strawberry Seeds as possible.
