i REALLY wanna try it!


Pineberries look like albino strawberries and taste like pineapples. Pineberries start off green, gradually turning paler as they ripen. Discovered wild in South America and rescued from extinction by Dutch farmers…they are smaller than most commercially grown strawberries, measuring slightly less than an inch. The pineberry is said to combine the shape and texture of a strawberry with a flavor and smell closer to that of a pineapple.

These strawberries are really interesting. The folks at Strawberry Plants.org have a few posts on them with tons of information, including where you can get your own. The main one is the Pineberry Pineberries post, but they also have a post on Pineberry Seeds that you might find interesting. There are more photos of the berries too. Thanks for posting about pineberries!

At first I thought you coated these with cream or sugar...so they are actually whitish color like that? I want to try these once in my life. Looks so delicious.
