The arbutus, also known as strawberry or strawberry tree is a typical species of the Mediterranean region. The name 'unedo' tree comes from the quality of its fruit, which you will eat only one time, or "unum edo", making it "a fruit without merit," as Linnaeus said. Arbutus are little consumed in France but are common in Spain, Morocco and Algeria. Warning: The arbutus is a tree that very quickly goes up in flames.
