Please watch: “The Color of Our Primitive World- bushcraft paint”

Comparison/Basic Identification of the Common Wild Strawberry (Fragaria virginiana) and the Mock or Indian Strawberry (Duchesnea indica -AKA -Potentilla indica).

Both are edible, however use caution and check with a local expert before using or consuming any wild plant. Better safe than sorry!

Excellent additional resources for identification and uses:
*Peterson Field Guides – Medicinal Plant and Herbs
*Peterson Field Guides – Edible Wild Plants
