Wild Strawberry, also known as Fragaria vesca, is a perennial herbaceous plant that grows naturally throughout much of the Northern Hemisphere, producing flavorful and succulent edible fruit. Evidence from archaeological excavations show that humans have been consuming Wild Strawberry since the Stone Age. The fruit is still collected and grown on a small scale commercially for its use in gourmets, commercial jam, sauces, and liqueurs. It's also popular in alternative medicine and cosmetics. Despite being replaced by Garden Strawberry in the 18th century, Wild Strawberry's unique flavor and delicacy still hold great appeal. Cultivation is easy and seeds can be sowed early spring in a greenhouse. Wild Strawberry prefers a fertile, well-drained, moisture retentive soil in a sunny position, but can also tolerate semi-shade. Its leaves can also be used to brew an excellent tea. Try growing Wild Strawberry for its flavorful and aromatic fruit, and enjoy this ancient and timeless delicacy.
