Why are my strawberries turning white and deformed ?

My Strawberry plants berries keep turning white and grow deformed. Is it because there missing some kind of vitamins etc.? Some grow nice, but most get deformed as they grow. then some of them turn a milky white in spots, or all over the berry. Help ! I never get to eat them, they look horrible. The leaves and everything else looks healthy.

Without actually seeing the symptoms on your strawberry fruits, I can't be certain, but your description sounds most like western tarnished plant bug damage on strawberry fruits. This insect is present throughout North America. Michigan State University has a good guidesheet on identifying the pest and how to control it.
