Oklahoma designated the strawberry as official state fruit in 2005. The town of Stilwell, Oklahoma has held an annual strawberry festival for 60 years to celebrate this fruit and the farmers who grow it.
Strawberries (genus fragaria) are high in Vitamin C and A, and supply 8 percent of the recommended daily allowance for iron. One cup of fragrant, delicious fresh strawberries has only 60 calories and zero grams of fat. Oklahoma also recognizes a state vegetable (watermelon).
