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."
