Strawberry is a small plant with a three-leaved growth pattern.
It has small, white flowers usually produced during the spring.
Its fruit is red and fleshy.
Habitat and Distribution
Strawberries are found in the North Temperate Zone and also
in the high mountains of the southern Western Hemisphere. Strawberries
prefer open, sunny areas. They are commonly planted.
The fruit is edible fresh, cooked, or dried. Strawberries
are a good source of vitamin C. You can also eat the plants
leaves or dry them and make a tea with them.
Eat only white-flowering true strawberries. Other similar
plants without white flowers can be poisonous.
I have tried most other berries that look like wild strawberries,
and they don't taste anything like a strawberry. So if you are
worried about poisonous look-alikes, let your taste be the final
Tea made from the leaves has been used as a tonic and stomach
