    Haha really? What about the daylight and the power of the sun during the summer since without a lot of sun they won't turn red, how do you manage that part? Well we can pick them outside during the summer, but having them in a "Lab" producing berries 365 days a year is quite something else. :D

    Considering the forum, I was expecting this to be about some alternative to a Blackberry, not actual fruit.

    Considering the forum yeah sure, but we also discuss technologies in here too, and this sounds rather interesting, but maybe that's just me. :)

    Well, Blackberry is also a fruit just like the Strawberry :D
