Description

The word “pineberry” is a fusion of the words “pineapple” and “strawberry” and refers to a relatively new pale pink or pale orange to white strawberry cultivar that is adorned with red achenes. Pineberries are descendants of the strawberries native to North America, Fragaria virginiana, and strawberries native to Chile, Fragaria chiloensis. They are not genetically modified, nor are they somehow a cross between a pineapple and a strawberry. The biggest difference between red strawberries and Pineberries is the fruit. Pineberry plants yield white- to pinkish-hued fruits that start out green. Pink blush may be more prominent on fruit that gets more sun exposure. The fruit has a pleasantly pineapple aroma and taste, and is smaller than most modern domestic garden strawberries. Due to its appearance, the Pineberry fruit is also less appealing to birds than red strawberries. They can produce on their own but will produce even better planted with red strawberries as a pollinator.
