The Japanese [Strawberry]: Nuked too much or not enough?
In strawberry tourism farm of Okai-machi Fukui Prefecture Ogi-machi Tourism farm "Strawberry Tour", it was found that a strawberry shaped like a butterfly spreading feathers was produced. A farmers official said, "For the first time to see such a thing, it looks like a fairy" and narrows his eyes."I knew that there were three protrusions like chicken embroidery when there were many fertilizers, but it seems to be that this shape would be because the roots of the seedlings were tight and the nutrients were taken a lot" I guessed.

I've seen similar. It needs to spend at least another week in the sun. See the white part in the top-center? Unripe, sour.
Having said that, have you noticed how strawberries don't taste like strawberries any more? It's been a slow conversion til now. They have more of a citrus flavor now. In season (which isn't here yet) strawberries are a major part of my breakfast fruits routine and though I still eat them I yearn for the past version. Thanks Monsanto.
