If the fruit looks like a strawberry, it could be a wild strawberry (which tastes sweet and delicious) or it could be a mock (or false or Indian) strawberry which don't taste good (though they're edible). The mock strawberry is generally classified as an invasive weed. Since we can't ID it without a photo, you could take it to a garden center to confirm. Wild strawberries are extremely nutritious and have about 10 times the vitamin C of a mock strawberry.
