Replacing strawberries

I had a huge strawberry patch in my front yard that I've removed. What edible should I plant there now? What edible will thrive in similar growing conditions to a strawberry? I'm leaning towards rhubarb since it's also lovely to look at.

What about replacing the strawberries with currants or blueberries? Both of those are attractive plants. Rhubarb is a great choice too, if you can find enough uses for it.

I'd go with some ornamental peppers if it was me. You can eat actually eat the peppers so don't let the "ornamental" bit put you off. Or try a variety of plants so you have something to look forward to each season.

I like the idea of trying a variety of plants, @Gardenry. I'll have to look into those ornamental peppers. They sound cool (uh, hot) but I've never seen them before. I might have to order them from a catalog.
