Strawberry tree

Strawberry Tree fruits and flowers

The Strawberry Tree (Arbutus unedo) is a native shrub of the Mediterranean area. The fruits resemble strawberries in appearence but not in taste. Some people like them - I don't! The fruits are made into a preserve in this area of France, which I don't like either! Surprisingly, the Strawberry Tree is a member of the Ericaceae and is a member of the heather family.
