Another picture from last summer. Yummy strawberries in my garden. The very little ones. They taste fantastic!
For all who wanted to know: This is a WILD strawberry. They look different from normal ones.
Description: Similar to the domestic variety, but the berries are quite a bit smaller, measuring about quarter inch (6 mm) in diameter. The Woodland Strawberry was widely cultivated in Europe before being largely replaced by the Garden Strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa and other hybrids), which have much larger berries. Woodland Strawberry fruit is strongly flavored, and is still grown on a small scale commercially for the use of gourmets. Unlike most commercial and garden cultivars of strawberries, Woodland Strawberries rarely form runners, and are usually propagated by seeds or division of the plants.
Where found: Throughout the Northern Hemisphere
Use: The fruits can be eaten raw or cooked into jellies and jams. It can also be baked into pies. An herbal tea made from the leaves, stems, and flowers is believed to aid in the treatment of diarrhea.
Very nice indeed; I like the contrast and high resolution effect.
I must ask though, I've seen the wild strawberries PLANTS with the white flowers, but that is it, and have never had the fortune to see the berries. YET, I've seen at my grandmother's house, something that looks like strawberries, but they had yellow flowers before the berries, and I've been very hesitant to eat them, not knowing if they are edible or not. Seeing this image, and how it looks similar in shape (since the yellow-flower ones look quite round) I only wonder if you might know if the wild ones with yellow-flowers, are edible or not?
Well, I can only hope. Poor quality, but these are the best I could get on short notice, while at my grandmother's yesterday. [link] I think I'm more paranoid about the fact that Deadly Nightshade grows around the edges of the fence and area surrounding the patch of berries.
