GROWING WILD STRAWBERRIES IN THE BACKYARD!
This is wild strawberry or Woodland Strawberry (Fragaria Vesca) growing in Brooklyn backyard. Mmmmm!
Wild strawberry is not like a regular strawberry at all. It has a different taste and smell. It smells like forest. Red, juicy and fragrant wild strawberries are false fruits Berries are seeds hidden in a juicy pulp. Examples of berries - blueberry, cranberry, tomato and watermelon. The seeds of the wild strawberry sit on the surface of this false fruit that functions as a bait for the animals, who eat the seeds and help spread the seeds with their droppings. Wild strawberries are so delicious and aromatic because they wants us to eat them (yes yes!), ha-ha!
Wild strawberries usually are found near trails, young forests and forest openings.
There is so much can be said about this amazing fruit.

Wild Strawberry is a common creeping plant that grows in forests, fields, lawns, forest edges, roadsides, and streamsides (just about anywhere). It can grow up to six inches tall, and its leaves are split into three leaflets.
Each leaflet is 1 to 1 1/2 inches long and has teeth on its edges. Petioles are hairy.
Creeping plants, like strawberries, have runners. Runners are stems which grow sideways on the surface of the soil. As the runners grow, they send up new strawberry plants.

Wild Strawberry is occasional to locally common in most areas of Illinois, but it is uncommon or absent in parts of NW and southern Illinois (see Distribution Map). Habitats include moist to mesic black soil prairies, openings and edges of woodlands (including drier areas), savannas, limestone glades, and areas along railroads.

There are no poisonous plants that resemble strawberries, but there's a related edible plant called the wood strawberry with yellow flowers, and a similar fruit surrounded by hairy sepals (modified leaves)

Maybe only I've been so lucky, but every wild strawberry I've tried in America is tasteless :(
