Wild Strawberries

Each June and July growing locally we have lots of wild strawberries, they do best in dry and well drained ground such a raised hedgerows or like these ones, along a river bank in a disused slate quarry near the village of Windgap, County KIlkenny.

    Are they edible or too bitter to eat?

    • Hello Vicki…

      Yes your can eat them, you need to be careful that they are fresh but you can eat the full plant including the leafs.

      They are a little sweet and not that different than the supermarket type, but you will be finding them fresh so they are much better πŸ™‚
