    In asexual reproduction or vegetative reproduction, the parent organism produces offsprings without meiosis and fertilization. The offspring inherits all DNA from one parent. They are genetically identical to each other and their parent. Speaking of strawberries and vegetative reproduction, strawberries have long stems called stolons. Wherever a stolon touches a ground it produces roots, this provides growth to a new plant irrespective if the stolon is broken off from the parent plant. When this occurs, every plant that grows from a stolon is genetically identical to the parent plant
