フユイチゴ

共生の森の近くでフユイチゴの赤い果実を見つけました。野生のキイチゴの一種で、果実は食用になります。他のキイチゴの多くが夏に熟すのに対して、本種は冬に果実が熟すことが和名の由来です。


I found red fruits of a "Fuyuichigo (フユイチゴ)" plant near the Kyoseinomori-Forest (共生の森). They are wild raspberry and their fruits are edible. "Fuyu (フユ)" in its name means "winter", and it comes from the fact that their fruits get ripe in winter while many other raspberries get ripe in summer.
