Pineberry? Whoever heard of a Pineberry?…. February 18, 2013

No, it’s not some fictitious fruit from Willy Wonka’s lickable wall paper, but a real strawberry variant, which supposedly has a subtle pineapple flavour. (Yummy eh)?

 

Anyhoo….I have just bought some seeds, and am quite excited about getting them growing, and possibly getting some fruits next year. I have read that because of their white appearance they rarely need netting as birds don’t think they’re ripe!

 

I was wondering whether anybody has had any experience with these funky little fruits?

    I’ve never heard or seen this before. Hope you could tell us later how its taste. 🙂

  4. Never heard of this. I can’t wait to hear about how they taste, though 🙂

    That’s a very cunning fruit to escape birds nibbling! I’ve only ever seen them in photos never tasted but they are more the colour of pineapple so it should be interesting when you get your harvest.
