The Church is like Strawberry plants

I had a dream that I was given a strawberry plant. Reading about strawberries, it struck me that they have some symbolic attributes of the Church that were interesting!

Strawberries are a popular red fruit grown all over North America. The species name is Fragaria, which comes from fragans, which means odorous; referring to the strawberry's pleasant smell .

Strawberries are red on the outside and white on the inside.
The fruit can be used as a teeth whitener.
Each berry has up to 200 seeds on the outside of it's skin.
Strawberries are planted from the end of September to the end of October.
Peak harvest time is from April to June, although it starts in February.
California produces 83% of the Strawberries in the US, followed by Florida.
