Pineberry – Is it as rare as it appears?

Hello,

I was asked previously what the fruit was a few times, which I shared a photo of. So I thought I would introduce to you the pineberry. It is honestly a favourite of mine however they are very difficult and rare to come across in the UK.  The only reason I am aware of their existence was because Tesco and Waitress went through a phase of selling unusual fruits. This was one of my my favourites from the promoted selection. If you are looking to get your hands on some nowadays then Harrods tend to stock them inside their food court.

Regrettably they actually aren’t as rare as we I would like to believe and are very common in South America (I know where I need to visit next). Smaller than the common strawberry, the pineberry is almost entirely white but with red seeds when ripe. They have an appreciation of a white strawberry but smaller in size. Some say that they have a pineapple-like flavour and I would agree they do not taste like a strawberry however I would say it is subtle.

I would also recommend the strasberry which to me, looks and tastes like a perfect mix between a strawberry and a raspberry although not actually a hybrid between the two.

Let me know if you have tasted any unusual fruit and what they are like.

Still hungry?
