5g of strawberry 

Cells of banana and strawberry are the same size approximately and so are the length of their chromosomes. Chromosomes are just condenced DNA. 5g of straberry and 5g of banana have approx. the same number of cells, consequently 5g of straberries will have more chromosomes and DNA.
