wild berries

We are now enjoying the wild strawberries – Fragaria vesca. So many names 🙂Fragaria vesca, commonly called wild strawberry, woodland strawberry, Alpine strawberry, Carpathian strawberry, European strawberry, or fraisier des bois, is a perennial herbaceous plant in the rose family that grows naturally throughout much of the Northern Hemisphere, and that produces edible fruits.

Vaccinium myrtillus or European blueberry is a species of shrub with edible fruit of blue color, commonly called bilberry, “blaeberry”, “wimberry”, “whortleberry”. It has much in common with the American blueberry. It is more precisely called common bilberry or blue whortleberry, to distinguish it from other . Regional names include blaeberry (Scotland), urts or hurts (Cornwall & Devon), hurtleberry,huckleberry, myrtleberry, wimberry, whinberry, winberry, blueberry, and fraughan.

Once again so many names 🙂
