I have received several requests from people looking for pineberry seeds for sale. Over the last year or two, many people have become interested in the “new” strawberry hybrid that has white accessory flesh and bright red seeds. The introduction of these pineberries into the commercial retail store chain Waitrose in the United Kingdom (albeit on a limited basis) caused a surge of interest.
The unique selling point for pineberries is their unusual flavor. They have a flavor that is a fusion of traditional strawberry flavor with pineapple overtones. Hence, the pineapple + strawberry = pineberry. The pineberry has been billed as a new strawberry variety. In fact, that is not quite accurate. While new to the commercial markets, it is actually quite old. But, as this post deals with why it is so hard to find pineberry seeds for sale, please refer to the longer post that deals with the history and confusion surrounding this cultivar here: Pineberry Pineberries.

Planting strawberry plants in the fall is a good idea. However, most home gardeners get excited about their gardens toward the end of the winter months and don’t plan far enough ahead to plant strawberries during the autumn months of the previous year.
There are two main consequences of this widespread pattern:
1. Most home gardeners miss out on a healthy crop of strawberries during the first year (growing season) they are planted.
2. It is harder to find strawberry plants for sale in the fall months simply due to supply and demand. Demand is much less, so supply is much less.
This post is for those people looking to plant strawberry plants in the fall so that they can reap a healthy harvest of strawberries during the gardening season the following spring/summer. Below you will find some helpful reminders and information, as well as a list of suppliers who offer fall strawberry plants for sale.
