Strawberries are the most popular small fruit for backyard growers and are well adapted to most areas in the United States, according to Michigan State University Extension. While raspberries, grapes and blueberries require multiple years before producing much fruit, some strawberry varieties produce a good crop by mid-summer of the planting year. If managed well, a planting can last five to seven years before needing replacement.
