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.
