HEIRLOOM STRAWBERRIES

wild heirloom strawberries, zemlyanika,  design squish blog

Wild strawberries grown in our backyard in Brooklyn this summer. Last year’s photos of wild strawberries: http://www.blog.designsquish.com/wild-strawberries

“Evidence from archaeological excavations suggests that wild strawberry has been consumed by humans since the Stone Age. It was widely cultivated in Europe until the 18th century, when it began to be replaced by the garden strawberry, which has much larger fruit and showed greater variation, making them better suited for further breeding.”
