For lovers of pineapple, there is the pineberry. The pineberry has a pineapple taste, with a hint of strawberry, and a lovely aroma. Pineberrie are shaped like a strawberry, but the pineberry is white with red seeds. Of course, pineberries are expensive and can be found in specialty markets. Bakeries and restaurants are buyers of pineberries too. Pineberries are not genetically modified, and pineberries are not a cross between a strawberry and a pineapple. Pineberries are merely descendants of the strawberries that are native to North America and Chile. Pineberries are easy to grow, and they are disease resistant. If you can grow strawberries in your area, then you can grow your own pineberries by purchasing pineberry seeds or pineberry plants.
My very first pineberries!!!! It took a year of neglect until a friend inspired me to dust them off and show them some love and now they are producing some o...

Well, these berries grow naturally, but not a lot of them around, so they are expensive.

I bought the seed and planted the white strawberries, I think it was 5 years ago. The plants produced very few berries and I did not even like the taste. The plants are still there and the birds eat the few berries that they produce every year.

Well, feeding the birds makes up for the berries you did not like.

@Corbin5 The white berries look nice, sometimes I use a few to decorate a cheesecake, some red and some white strawberries look nice on the cake.

@LadyDuck was the taste sour? Or sweet-bitter?

This is great information. Just that I don't think either strawberries or pineberries will grow in my town. It gets really hot out here. But that they are disease resistant must help them survive. Then why are they expensive?

Due to the berries not shipping well, the berries have to be grown and purchased locally. And, due to not a huge number produced in some areas, the price is high. Japan has a lot of white strawberries, but shipping them to other countries may not be possible.

Strawberries are already hard to find here and grows only in our cold Northern provinces, they are not even native but brought only by American missionaries, what more with pine berries? I got an idea, your strawberries and pineberries trade with my fresh pineapples, I'll give you a ton

@db20747 Well,since these berries are a bit tangier due to their pineapple-like taste, I am not sure they would taste as good as regular strawberries with cream.

I will have to keep that in my mind when we eat out, we don't usually have dessert, but I can check the menu.

They really do have a good taste, but growing them would be less costly than buying the white strawberries.

@Corbin5 We had a strawberry patch years ago, it took a 2 or 3 years from the time we planted the plants until the time we could get any fruit from them. So I think that although it would pay in the long run, it would really be a L O N G run.

If I could remember to water the darn things, I would give them a try too. I remember to water flowers, but veggies and fruits sort of become forgotten.

@TheHorse Will do. I did buy the red bananas, for which I wrote a discussion, that have a nice, creamy vanilla taste to them. I shared the taste-test results here. So, will do the same for the pineberries. If the pineberries are incredibly expensive, forget it.

@Corbin5 The first time I went to Hawaii, I found out that there are many kinds of pineapple and my favorite was the apple pineapple (Not sure if that's the right name), it tasted more like apple than pineapple and this kind of strikes me as the same deal.
