Deffiantely NOT a strawberry!!!!

I agree with gardengeek it looks very much like a black nightshade.

I suggest you do not but these berries anywhere near your mouth.

It looks like Black Nightshade (Solanum Nigrum), if not, I would guess that it is some other Nightshade, which are mostly poisonous.
Tell Bonnie that Gardengeek said to be careful next time!

I retract my initial claim that you might have POKEWEED as the stem on your plant is quite green and not a characteristic red. You may actually have a WONDERBERRY (Solanum burbankii). It is still a part of the nightshade family, but at least the berries can be eaten after cooking. Even so, I would demand a refund from Home Depot. This is definitely not a Strawberry plant.

Um... Whatever you do, don't eat these berries until you can identify PRECISELY what plant you have. It might just be POKEWEED. (Not that you should eat POKEWEED berries.) But note that BELLADONNA also produces dark purple berries and is highly poisonous. However, I think BELLADONNA has purple flowers, not white.
