It's a wild, wild strawberry

Strawberry school is back in session. Our Market Watch columnist David Karp returns with Part Two of his berry primer.

And this time, it's just wild.

Last week, Karp gave us a buying guide to farmers market strawberries, focusing on standard varieties. Let us now consider specialty and exotic strawberry varieties, both from farmers markets and further afield. And click here to check out his photo gallery of some of the most unusual strawberries you'll ever see.

PLUS: Cooking through the seasons -- your guide to choosing, storing and preparing the season's freshest produce.
