This species strawberry produces fragrant white fruits for most of the year. The leaves, flower and fruit resemble those of the common strawberry, abeit smaller. As the fruit is white, birds do not usually take it. The ripe fruit has an almost intoxicating flavour, that is immediately apparent as you walk past the plant.
