Fraises des bois

Also known as Alpine strawberries, these delicate wild berries from France are a rare sight, grown by David Winsberg of Happy Quail Farms at his greenhouse in Palo Alto. Popular with chefs, these small, soft, and intensely sweet and aromatic beauties must be harvested with care and packed into clamshells. You won’t find fraises des bois at supermarkets, as they are highly perishable and don’t travel well.
