There are so many circumstances connected with strawberry growing, such as varieties, soil, climate, location, markets, and the skill and management of the grower, that the results of a few cases cannot be relied on as a general rule. The premium crop in Burlington Co., N. J., was at the rate of 268 bushels per acre, yielding a profit of upwards of $1,000. But one-third that amount would be nearer our general average.

For ten years past our whole crops have averaged about 2,500 quarts per acre, and averaged twelve cents per quart in market - giving the following results :
