I found these facts at What's Cooking America.

Fresh Strawberries:

1 basket = 1 pint strawberries = 7 cups whole berries = 2 1/4 cups sliced (1/4-inch thick) strawberries = 1 2/3 cups pureed strawberries. Basket of strawberries refers to the market package. 1 tray or flat of strawberries = 12 baskets or pints.

1 quart whole strawberries = 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 pounds strawberries = 7 cups whole strawberries = 4 cups sliced (1/4-inch thick) strawberries = 4 to 5 servings.

1 1/2 quarts fresh strawberries are needed for one 9-inch pie.

1 pint = 1/4 pound whole strawberries = 12 large strawberries = 24 medium strawberries = 36 small strawberries = 2 to 2 1/2 cups sliced (1/4-inch thick slices) strawberries = 1 1 /4 cups pureed strawberries.

1 cup whole strawberries = 4 ounces strawberries = 1/2 cup strawberry puree.

12 pounds or 8 quarts of fresh strawberries = approximately 13 pints of frozen berries.


Frozen Strawberries:

20-ounce bag frozen whole strawberries = 4 cups whole strawberries = 2 1/2 cup sliced strawberries = 2 1/4 cups pureed strawberries.

10-ounce package frozen sliced sweetened strawberries =
1 1/4 cups strawberries in syrup.
