Just for the memories....
Frageria vesca, called woodland- or wild strawberry, is a variety of small strawberries, which are very aromatic and strongly flavoured, but are not very fleshy, partly because of their small size. They don't always turn completely red or only partly red when ripe, but still have a very pleasant and a mildly sweet taste.
A friend of mine gave me this "Wald-Erdbeere", as it is called in German, when she came to visit me about two years ago in autumn. Initially I thought it to be the same as some other variety, whose berries looked a bit different than the typical strawberries and although they were very aromatic, didn't taste as good.
But, the next year, when the strawberries grew, I enjoyed eating these and this time Rishab too!
