Darryl Strawberry's not living up to his name ... because according to a new lawsuit, he stiffed a produce company on a massive fruit and vegetable bill -- to the tune of $2,694.

New V&J Produce Corp has filed a lawsuit against Strawberry and his NYC restaurant Strawberry's Sports Grill, claiming it recently made multiple produce shipments to the establishment worth a total of $2,694.

According to the lawsuit, V&J has made several attempts to recover what it's owed ... but Strawberry has yet to pay up.

V&J is now suing for the full sum, plus $500 in attorneys' fees ... a total of $3,194. That's a lot of produce.

Calls to Strawberry's camp weren't returned.

you people are clueless, the guy didn't even own the place, a group approached him to be the name they could use for the restaurant and they would give him some of the profits in order to do so. he didn't invest one dime of the money he doesn't have. tmz you suck

When he was playing for the Mets decades ago, he promised me an autograph after the game. Well there was a rain delay and extra innings. I waited for the end. The coke head just walked by and did not stop and sign my ball. Jerk!!! Doesn't surprise me that he would flake out on a bill.
