A strawberry plant is a leafy bush that grows large, fleshy red berries that can be planted in growing zones by your colonists. Unlike wild berry bushes, strawberry plants are a crop, and are completely removed when harvested and must be replanted to be grown and harvested again.

Unlike most other foods that must be cooked to prevent the "ate raw food" thought, berries can be eaten raw without a mood penalty. However, as with all raw foods, they still have a flat 2% chance to give food poisoning.

Growing

Sowing strawberry plants requires a minimum growing skill of 5, but any colonist capable of plant cutting can harvest them.

Strawberries are greatly affected by fertility of the soil, and as such, they are best suited to be grown in hydroponics basins, where their yield outperforms all other crops except rice.
