View Full Version : Wild Strawberries - Can they be "tamed?"

04-22-2009, 12:29 PM

I've got a massive TON of wild strawberries growing all over my yard, especially around the foundation of my house! But the fruit never seems to develop fully and isn't edible. Any ideas or suggestions on how to improve the fruit so I can EAT THEM?! Thanks!!!

Some of them look like they are harvestable. What do they taste like? Do they fruit more than once a season?

I've only noticed them fruiting in the early spring. They really have no taste (taste "green" ??? if that's a word...) They are tiny, the size of a pinky finger fingernail.

They've been around for several seasons now, having gotten started, I believe, from the remnants of a snack I had while gardening one day.
