Strawberry Blite. A small, red, mulberry-like fruit, this grows on sprawling plants which are primarily grown as greens for salads or used as a herb, though should not be used in quantity. The leaves may also be cooked like spinach but, again, in moderation. The pleasantly sweet but essentially bland berries are small, pulpy and bright red, resembling strawberries. They provide an interesting accent to salads. The is plant prefers cool weather and damp mountain valleys but will tolerate heat. Native Americans used to use it as a dye.
