Smultron, much, much smaller than strawberries

Kid's favourite

Fragaria vesca (Linné) You cannot get enough of them. Ripe a bit early this year

Very nice fruit and photo. Is the fruit wild or cultivated?

Thank you Macnite. It is wild as opposed to Strawberries. Penolta might know more or I'll come back with more information. If you never have tasted them you sure have something to taste forward to

The northern hemisphere. Have a look at hte map. Perhaps you have some in a place nearby

Wild Strawberries "on the rocks" or with cream (whipped or not) can give you one of the most earthly tastes ever developed through the evolution

Macnite, this is one of the typical habitats. I also want to add that their scent and taste is different from any other

Seems no chemist has managed to create such a flavour

Nope - I'll leave it to you. They don't grow where I live - plenty of cultivated strawberries, some half as large as your fist, but the bigger they are, the flatter they taste.

By many the preferred way of eating them. Especially children. First measure the straws. Then: the one who first fills the straw wins. They are very, very rich in taste

Strawberries is not a species, it's a hybrid of two american species, Fragaria chiloënsis and Fragaria virginiana, that was crossed with Fragaria moscata, forming the Fragaria x ananassa (Weston) Decne & Naudin.

Someone please correct these data if they're wrong
