Woodland Strawberries (lat. „fragaria vesca“) belong to the rose family and prefer sparse and coniferous forest clearings or grow alongside the woodland edges. They served mankind over the ages with sustenance, which also finds reference in the botanical type designation (vesca = edible). Archaeological finds show that their sweet fruits were already collected during the Stone Age. Roman poets praise them, and already in Medieval times they were cultivated on a large scale.
IIn the animal world the Woodland Strawberries are also very popular: bees and ants enjoy the nectar of the blossoms; foxes, squirrels and hedge-hogs, but also birds and many other animals are attracted by the shining red fruits.
The wintergreen, herbaceous plants grow about 5-25 cm high and display their white blossoms from April to June, which ripen during the summer time. If they have plenty and strong enough sunshine some of the plants are capable of producing blossoms and fruits until the first winter frost arrives. Botanically, they are actually no berries, but so-called accessory fruits: the small (green at first and later yellow) points on the berries indicate that some of the fruit is derived not from the ovary but from some adjacent nuts. As the ripening process increases, the water content also increases and the “berries” take on an intensive, sweet-aromatic taste.
