It's been 6 weeks since I took this photo of the white strawberries.
Fraises Des Bois.
(As Julie pointed out, that's Wooden Strawberries for those who don't parlez the francais - wink).
As well as sitting in front of the strawberry patch and just scoofing them straight from the plant, I whizzed them up with some little strawberries off the Golden Leaf Strawberry and made some very delicious warm strawberry sauce.
6 weeks later and the plant is still fruiting like the clappers
(what ARE the clappers?).
I have 6 different strawberry plants and this one is the most prolific.
I thought the Fraises Des Bois would be the least successful of the 6 as it is an "alpine" strawberry.
Just goes to show - you just never know til you have a crack, do you?
