Not only are the industrially grown strawberries pretty flavorless, but they struggle to survive in soil that hasn't been sterilized by methyl bromide or methyl iodide, 2 compounds that are proven to cause cancer.
Older, heirloom varieties of strawberries do well in regular old soil, soil that doesn't need cancer-causing agents to keep it going. And also: they TASTE better.
