The biggest strawberry in the world is a fifteen-foot tall, twelve-foot wide fiberglass beauty that is red, plump, and probably delicious. It sits high in the sky on a post marked “Strawberry Point” for visitors to the small Iowa town to admire. This Iowa roadside attraction was designed by a local ad agency in the late 1960s to put this Clayton County locale on the map. And that they did, some 60 years later you can still find this big fruit hoisted on a pole in front of the town’s City Hall.

I’d say, that’s pretty sweet!

How did Strawberry Point Iowa get its name?

You might think a town named after the bright red fruit would be leaders in its production, but that is far from the truth. Iowa is known for the likes of corn and soybean crops, not strawberries. But, according to the town’s official website, Strawberry Point Iowa was founded in 1853 and was “named by the soldiers, traders, and railroad workers who enjoyed the bountiful wild strawberries found along the area’s trails and hillsides.”
