Mock Strawberry

I thought I found tasty wild strawberries growing in my backyard.  A little research told me that these are mock strawberries, also called snake berries or Indian strawberries.  Not tasty.

    I’ve seen something similar to this though it’s orange and about the size of a golf ball. Maybe it’s the same family as this. Anyway, pretty pic!
