But ultimately it does not answer the question whether the surface of real life strawberries have the colour I perceive and does it even make sense to think that the strawberries are actually red.

I thought that was settled. 'redness' is a construct of your brain, not something stuck to the surface of fruit or buses. Your 'qualia' aren't on the fruit. It doesn't even make sense to pose the question. Your qualia reflects the spectral characteristics of the object and it is accurate and reliable in most cases, even adverse conditions. Yes the strawberries are actually red not green or blue or grey (don't eat those strawberries).
