I’m asked this question often. White and yellow strawberries are not as uncommon as you might expect. In fact, non red strawberries are found in a number of species such as Fragaria vesca, F. x ananassa, F. virginiana and F. chiloensis. The last species mentioned, F. chiloensis are found in Western North America and Western South America. The South American Chilean strawberries play a major role in the hybridization of strawberries that we have now as F. x ananassa. White wild strawberries were cultivated by the native population of Chile when explorers tooks several plants back to Europe.
