Woodland Strawberry

Fragaria vesca


Woodland strawberries (Alpine Strawberry, Fraises des Bois, Wild Strawberry, European Strawberry) are fragrant, sweet and succulent. Their taste is beyond comparison, no words can describe it to a person who has never tasted a woodland strawberry. I think it is quite wrong that in English it is called a wild strawberry because it tastes completely different than a strawberry. It is a very unique, delicious fruit that is not easy to spot in a forest and takes an effort to gather more than a handful :) In Polish it is called "poziomka."

These are my favourite to pick up along forest paths! As you write the taste is unbelievable. Nice to know their name in Polish!

Thank you all very much! I tried to sign it for The Color Red mission, I am going to report it and see if that works :)

Wild strawberries are so cute :) Lovely set of photos! What mission are you trying to attach it to? I can try for you in case it's something your end. Otherwise, it sounds like it might be a little bug, you can report it!

How can I sign my picture for a mission I joined? I ticked a mission when I uploaded my spotting but it does not show...
