Can Strawberries Clone Themselves in the Field?

The organ used for asexual reproduction in a strwberry plant is the stem.

The stem runs through the ground sprouting identical plants, clones, to the parent which means they are genetically identical.

Strawberries can be bred with other fruits through pollination. This is a pineberry- pineapple+strawberry

The strawberry plant produces flowers that, when pollinated, bear fruit.

So in conclusion...

...this statement is TRUE. Strawberries can indeed clone themselves in the field. Strawberries reproduce asexually, creating a clone of themselves. Only one parent needed!
