[nafex] Tristar Strawberries

Poor pollination is a common reason for odd shaped berries - the actual
fruits (botanically speaking) are what we think of as seeds on the surface
of the berry.  They are actually achenes - one seeded fruits.  If they set
uniformly, the "berry" (actually the receptacle) develops evenly.  If not
all of them set, the "berry" only develops where there is an achene.
