In brief: Healthier choice
This is a tricky question without a clear answer. Strawberries are a healthy food, but strawberries rank #3 on the environmental working groups "dirty dozen" with some strawberries having as many as 13 different pesticides on them! i don't believe it is wise to ingest pesticides so would never personally eat non-organic strawberries, but we don't know if the good in them might outweigh the bad.

In brief: Depends.
The fruit has the same benefits of vitamins and fiber etc.
but some people feel that organic fruits and vegetables have less toxic pesticides on them so you consume less. Organic farmers use pesticides that are felt to be safer. But is unclear how much pesticide humans actually consume from the food and whether those small amounts have any actual effect on you.
