Wild alpine strawberries are a perfect demonstration of selective plant breeding. While it’s hard to see how a wild grass turned into a modern corn plant, strawberries are different. Looking at an alpine strawberry, with a little imagination you can envision the gigantic strawberries of today.
Modern supermarket strawberries are more or less a testament to progress. So why would you want to bother with finding wild strawberries?
The truth is until you’ve tasted a wild strawberry, you’ve never really experienced all that a strawberry can be. What these little beauties lack in size, they make up for in flavor.
