Don’t be fooled: This Isn’t Wild Strawberry

Snake berry, also known as mock strawberry or Indian strawberry, is a unique plant that is native to Asia but has been naturalized in many parts of the world. It is easily mistaken for wild strawberry, but it is not related to the wild strawberry plant. Snake berry is edible, but it has no flavor and is not suitable for recipes that call for wild strawberry.

Snake berry has a unique appearance. The plant is low-growing and has three-lobed leaves that are similar in shape to wild strawberry leaves. The fruits are small and yellowish-green in color. They are juicy and contain a single seed.

Though the fruits of snake berry are flavorless, they are still edible and safe to eat. They are a good source of water and can be eaten raw or cooked. They can also be used to make jams or jellies, as the fruits contain pectin which helps the jam or jelly to set.
