Forest fruits
The season for luscious forest berries is very short. Depending on the weather, it can last from July until the end of September only.

Forest fruits are also known as "berries from a bush". You are most likely to come across them in a forest... or on a market stall. They include wild strawberries, raspberries, dewberries, blueberries and blackberries. They might differ in shape and size, but what they have in common is that they are very healthy.

They are the Fellowship of the Ring in the fruit world - each of them has a different role to play. Wild strawberries are high in vitamin C. If your children area fussy eaters, give them wild-strawberry tea to stimulate their appetite. Raspberries are known for their diaphoretic effect and were used by our grandmothers to treat colds. They were also picked by Balladyna and Alina, the main characters in the famous Polish tragedy by Juliusz Słowacki. Dewberries are rich in vitamin E, also known as the vitamin of youth. They will help you to recuperate more quickly. Blueberries and blackberries offer a richness of vitamins and minerals, and have so many positive properties and effects that it would be difficult to name them all here! If you are still not convinced, listen to this. We heard that a walk in the forest is a very romantic pastime and a well-known mood booster! So, good luck and good berry picking! Just remember: make sure to wash the fruit before eating it.
