Sources: FAOSTAT data, 2014 (last accessed by Top 5 of Anything: January 2014).
List Notes: Strawberry production is in metric tonnes (m/t) for the year 2011 (latest year for which statistics are available as of Jan 2014). This top 5 list may include official, semi-official or estimated data gathered by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
*Important note: As of January 2014, China does not report strawberry production in its official annual agricultural statistical publication, "China's Agriculture Yearbook" so the exact size of China's strawberry industry is unknown. However as reported by the Department of China's Ministry of Agriculture, China's strawberry production may have reached 1,541,227 metric tons over the 2001-2003 time period which means that China could rank on the Top 5 of Anything list as one of the world's largest producers of Strawberries. However since at the moment official reliable data is not available, it has been not been included in our list of the Top 5 strawberry producers.
