Indian Strawberry

edible, Identification, Photography, spring wildflowers, yellow wildflowers / Saturday, May 19th, 2012

Overall, the indian strawberry (AKA false strawberry and mock strawberry) is smaller than the tasty wild strawberry, though the leaves look the same in shape.  Wild strawberries have white blooms whereas indian strawberries have yellow blooms.  Both are edible, but the indian strawberry is not as tasty.  This little plant is just about ready to produce a fruit!
