Wild Strawberry (Fragaria virginiana)
I'm a native of New York state and Tompkins County, NY.
We are edible and delicious.
We make a nice ground cover and spread by runners (stolens).
The cultivated strawberries are a cross between us and F. chiloensis (native to western coastal South America including Chile). We contribute the flavor and F.chiloensis contributes the size to the strawberries you may be more accustom to eating.
