1871 - The cultivation of the strawberry in California has been most successful, on lands irrigated by artesian wells, in Santa Clara Valley.

News
This year the vines yielded more abundantly than ever before, and the business is represented as overdone, the prices having fallen so low as to leave little chance of profit. The wholesale price of the berries at San Francisco was five cents per pound, and the amount received there daily was estimated at 60,000 to 70,000 pounds, indicating a lively consumption for a city of 150,000 inhabitants.
