Strawberry growers in Florida are getting some stiff competition, but not from their typical rivals.

California is the number one strawberry producer, followed by Florida. But now, growers in the sunshine state say they now have to worry about competition from Mexico.

According to new numbers, Mexico's strawberry crops are growing at such a high pace that it could soon catch up with Florida's production.
