California is the largest producer of strawberries in the United States. The history of strawberry cultivation in California dates back to the early 1900s when Italian immigrants began growing the fruit. Today, California's strawberry industry generates $2.5 billion in annual revenue. The hydrology of California plays a crucial role in strawberry cultivation. The state relies on surface water from rivers and snowpack from the Sierra Nevada mountains. The Strawberry Creek watershed in Southern California provides surface water for strawberry fields. Meanwhile, snowpack from the Sierra Nevada mountains contributes to the state's overall water supply. Agriculture is the primary use of strawberries in California, with the fruit being used for both fresh consumption and processed goods. Additionally, strawberries are a popular recreational crop, with many farms offering "U-pick" opportunities for visitors.
